20lb pike from large stillwater

This 20lb 2oz pike was the highlight of a four-fish haul for Jon Neafcy when he braved the recent storms at a large stillwater in Cambridgeshire.

The 40-year-old also netted a brace of predators over 16lb as well as a 15lb pike when he legered mackerel hookbaits at range on free running setups in order to offer as little resistance as possible.

All of his fish were beaten with rigs constructed with 40lb mainline which was tied to a 75lb titanium trace.
