Despite the fact that both of us were carrying binoculars (Simon 8 x 42 Opticron and me 8 x 42 Baush & Lomb "Elite's") and I had my camera slung over my shoulder - we were obviously anglers, thus unworthy of conversation? I, for my part, did offer the "Good Morning; anything about?" entry level question - complete waste of time. It is so sad that Tring has lost a great deal more than water levels in its' reservoirs.
|I probably could bore you with statistics - it is another 20lbs+ pike from Wilstone (1986-ish)|
|A giant - 47 inches from nose to tail fork. |
What did it weigh? For me to know and you to find out!
However, it takes all sorts, and that pike session is something that I look forward to. Between now and then, I have one more (planned) outing on the R. Stour before concentrating my efforts on a centre-pin caught pike of 23lbs 5oz+. It might be a dream too far, but what's the point in living if a man can't have dreams? I'm confident that the RMC contains pike of this size - have I the skills required to catch one; now there's the question!
