Duo each land 20lb-plus Wye pike

A session on the River Wye saw Adam Fisher and James Edmunds help themselves to a 20lb-plus pike apiece.

Fishing two different Angling Dreams controlled stretches of the waterway at Ross-on-Wye the duo both presented sardine deadbaits hard on the deck.

James was the first to be called in to action and after a powerful fight he slipped the net under a cracking 22lb 3oz predator.

A few smaller fish where then landed before they headed to a different area.
Adam, director of Angling Dreams, said: “We dropped our baits tight under the nearside margin and at half two I received a plodding take.

“Once the fish got out in the flow it gave a really good account of itself and on the bank it tipped the scales at 23lb 6oz.” He added: “As we each had a 20lb pike under our belt we decided to retire to the pub for the remainder of the afternoon to celebrate!”
