hi all
i fancy a go at pike fishing on the river severn but have only been once and that was when i was a kid. i quite fancy the idea of dead bait fishing but im not really sure of the basic setups i get the idea but if some1 could run me through the rig that would be great!
thx in advance

at this time of year i would avoid dead baiting entirely as the fish have a tendancy to gorge the bait...and that's a bad idea even for an experienced piker.

get some assorted lures and take a stroll...real good fun and can lead to a really busy day!

if you're going to target weir pools one lure to get hold of is a devil's own soft tail lure like this fella http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DEVILS-OWN-SOFT-TAIL-FISHING-LURES-RED-NOSE_W0QQitemZ250127285033QQihZ015QQcategoryZ1493QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem i've had numerous pike with this very lure on the thames, kennet, loddon and cam...they love it!

good luck!
