Recently retired, my old Pops has been putting his new found freedom from the daily grind to good use by pike fishing on the Fen Drains. He's putting in the hours and after a series of blanks throughout the recent cold snap he's just been rewarded with this blinder caught this very morning.
I received the call about 10am from a flustered Dad explaining i had to come and photograph a 20lb'er!! I grabbed the camera and was on the bank with him in five minutes to confirm the weight at 19.2! Making it his second biggest pike ever!
Big Smiles all round but after a catalogue of mid to high doubles we are still hunting that illusive Fen 20! With Dad on the bank 4 to 5 days per week i,m guessing it wont take long before he's blessed with the prize.
As you can imagine, Dad is a strong advocate of my floats and favours my Gazette pike bobs! Keep flying the flag Dad!! Surely that 20 is just around the corner!!
