thats a good duck adrian brilliant vid leander
This Pike was about 7 lbs, and no, I'm a conservationist - I put them back alive
to continue to grow and breed. A photograph is my trophy.
Pike have a lot of bones and are difficult to filet anyway,
but it's good to know I'd never starve.........![/QUOTE]
It's the same over here Steve, pike are put back alive to fight another day. I ask because we see TV programmes about survival techniques etc and although a different scenario, the pike caught are taken for food and I wondered if the species was on the menu in general. The meat is awful, I tried it once and it was like eating cotton wool and needles.
Here's a photo taken this year of my daughter and her rainbow trout. We go fly fishing on occasion and although she hasn't mastered the casting technique I let her bring the fish in. This was the biggest trout I ever hooked and I gave the rod to her before I realised how big it was. [/Q Awesome Adrian! Thats a lovely Rainbow, i love fishing and it got to the stage where i could'nt go without taking my two daughters, they cut there teeth on Rainbow trout the first time i took them, it's a great feeling seeing them actually land a fish, Cheers.
cheers Ronnie for posting that pic, NOT, i look a sandwich short of a picnic ,,,,, cheers simple Dave
