Baptism of fire!
If your mate hadn't ribbed you, you'd have not bothered! amazing...

It's a bloody fish that. I'd be happy with a 5lb jack in all honesty.
Still, fishing's what I like and I like fishing - I wont stop til I can't pick a rod up... It's the early stages of a lifetime hobby but every single outing is different afro
Gonna have a go at making them pike indicators of yours - i'm appalling with tools (why I work in an office) but I love trying ha ha!

I'm sure I got told the colder the better but it seems to be falling into disrepute given all the blanks in sub zero temperatures I have been suffering from lol!

Wednesday/Thursday this week will be ideal Pike fishing conditions. Temps have been down for weeks butt this week the temps will rise to 3-4 degrees and we are to get some light wind and rain. Perfect conditions for Pike lads Wink

You will still catch in sub zero conditions but the Pike will not want to move far for a meal Wink

i got another pack of them highlight felts yesterday so i could make 3 yellow drop offs, i'm not keen on them all being different colours. if you wanted i could make you a pair if you reimbersed me for the line clips n stuff. i've not got any weights but could get around that easy enough, i'll need to get some form of stems from somwhere too. let me know mate

you certainly will i,ve had many in sub zero tempertures and even when the cold water from the thaw going in you can catch, but they as woody have said they will be laying up and most will probably be covered in leeches

I can understand that...
Also, air pressure, is that a big factor at all?

yeah i did think that but his line clips are different and his weights may even be different so they're not forced to fit the holes i make

sorted mate, they'll look good them with that swinging clip that atatches to the bankstick. i'll be best getting em first cos the line clip has a metal collar n i dont know its diameter. or i could bring my drill n bits and do it on the bank. i don't want any money mate if you've provided the line clip thats all i would have had to buy so now i don't need to it won't cost me anything
