1.-) Simon with a fantastic specimen of 20lbs 8oz; it looked bigger!
|Why we travel the 600 miles to Loch Awe|
|19lbs 12oz - pike fishing perfection?|
3.-) Benno with his 19lbs 4oz beauty
|19lbs 4oz - Benno's 2nd heaviest fish, both of them from Kilchun Bay, Loch Awe!|
|The heaviest pike of a three fish haul - taken within 20 minutes!|
5.-) Me with a 16lbs 5oz fish (exactly 1lb heavier than my previous Scottish PB!)
|31 years after I caught my first (15lbs 5oz) Scottish pike - this fish is a personal milestone! |
I've taken my Scottish PB to 16lbs 5oz.
|A bit of "photo-shop" technology to remove the "red-eye" problem with Benno.|
It doesn't work with fish?
8.-) Benno with a 15lbs 9oz pike
9.-) Simon with the first fish of the trip - 15lbs 6oz
10.-) Me with a 15lbs 2oz fish - on our first morning.
Ten magnificent fish from our 2013 Loch Awe trip; all taken on dead baits, some fished at 150m+.
Fantastic memories which will remain for the rest of my life - I don't think that any of us will ever experience this quality of pike fishing again. Proper piking, for wild fish, in a wild and wonderful place.
What are we going to do next year?
