This book describes the essential facts of pike behaviour and biology and gives new angles and original ideas for the keen and enquiring pike angler.
Mike Ladle brings his scientific training to bear on Pike angling and the habits and ecology of Pike. Jerome Masters, another fishery scientist, spent four years tagging and tracking Pike. Illustrated with many angling anecdotes and with an emphasis on lure fishing in Southern rivers and chalkstreams.
Chapters include: Choosing a pitch, Getting to know your fish, What Pike like, Where to catch a big one (or a small one), It’s a Pike’s life, Red in tooth and fin, Grub up, Movements and migrations, Treat ‘em or eat ‘em, Tales of Pike fishing.
Very interesting book for anyone who is into the ”background” of Pike fishing
