No, the point is that it is not that unusual to catch pike, even good ones, on small flies intended for trout. The 18lb fish was not the only pike I caught on a buzzer, but it was the biggest. I partnered a guy at Chew in a boat comp who hooked into a decent sized pike and was determined to get it into the boat despite the fact that it wouldn't have counted. We lost 30 minutes of fishing time while he farted around with that fish. I kept on at him to break off so we could get back to doing what we were there for. The inevitable happened of course, and he then spent the next four hours muttering about how big he thought the pike was.I think a lady angler landing a 32 lb pike on a buzzer is a very isolated incident indeed. Catching tiddlers like your 18 lb'er is neither here nor there.:fish:
Surprisingly enough, neither of us did any good in the competition.
