    Not much piking, but we like bit of fishing;

    Mainly on the fly these days, and not so much since we’ve lived in Holland, but there is a carp puddle type lake 200m up the road from us and the little ‘un likes to go for 1/2 an hour every now and again

    Quick question for rossi46….how much line should I put on the centrepin?

    100 yards of 5lb line is perfect, you dont want to overfill the spool as it wont trot as smoothly 😉
    Before i spool up new line i like to dunk it in some warm (not hot!) water for a good 10 minutes beforehand. This softens the line a bit and it sits nicer on the spool.
    Also i like to run the line between my fingers just before the reel- it means i can spread the line on the whole of the spool (a centrepin has a wide spool compared to a ‘normal’ reel) instead of it all gathering up on one side.

    Hope this helps!

    Lovely pictures everyone! Some nice looking fishing spots too, keep them coming 😀

    I’ve been down the river among the Roach this week:

    They have been loving the breadflake- no Chub as of yet though!

    Back on the Pike next week- i have an evening of lure chucking lined up 😉

    Going to the Broads next week. Can’t wait!
    I caught a 23lb pike deadbaiting on the Waveney a few years back. It looked like a crocodile when it came in to the net!

    My favorite Pikey quote (not the Burberry wearing chav type 😆 ) is from Catching the Impossible.
    Bernard Cribbins: “They frighten me- that’s good enough for me” before his float disappears and everyone says “You’re gonna run out of line”.
    He replied “I’m not going to run out of line- what’s the matter with you people”….always makes me chuckle 😆

    Has anyone fished Loch Ken for Pike before?
    I’m off to Scotland for a weeks riding and am taking my lure rod for a chuck in the evenings- i’ll be based near Loch Ken.
    I’ve never fished in Scotland before and i’m well aware of the legend of the Loch Ken Pike!
    I’ll be fishing from the shore with lures and spinners- any good spots to try?
