Today was the second outing of this years pike campaign. The first being a blank.

The swim I chose to fish was the same one I fished back on Jan. 5th 02. The day I first meet Zip and the start of a long series of blanks. These blanks were the basis of much mickey taking and banter concerning the Zippy curse.

Well!!!! he must have looked down on me, smiled, and lifted the curse.

Yes I have caught a pike not a big one but hell who cares its a pike nearly 11 months after my last.

The smile on my face speaks volumes. It weighed in at 7lb 11oz caught at approx. 9.15am on a popped up roach deadbait.

No more runs today and once more the rain started and persisted down all afternoon. My thanks to Trevski and son for sharing today and for taking the photo.

chill out go fishing

John i bet Zippy is sat with a big grin looking down on your first Pike for so long.

When you think the enjoyment you gave to Trev by guiding him to his Pike success's it a fitting tribute to him.
