A few jacks to 5lbs obliged yesterday, but the word is they are some up to twenty pounds. I got my PB fly caught Roach: a one pounder took a black Muskins!

Where did you catch if you don’t mind me asking I’ve never caught a pike on the fly, a five pound jack would do me fine...for a start! Well done on the roach by the way

The jacks were widespread, mainly coming to the bank anglers, a few of whom suffered bite-offs too. It appeared the pike were never far from shoals of little roach and other fry, in turn these were around weed beds and bankside rushes, and the Grebes were never far away either!
