Single bite results in 26lb pike from Scottish loch

Garry Christie only received one bite during a session on a remote Scottish loch – but he wasn’t complaining as it resulted in this 26lb 8oz pike.

The impressive predator – which measured more than 46ins – fell to a small section of popped-up lamprey.

Edinburgh-based Garry said: “My wife and I were on a three day highland break and I managed a day’s fishing with her tucked up in the bivvy. I’ve fished for pike all my life and this is definitely the hardest fighting pike I’ve ever had the pleasure of landing.”
