January 2 2012

Piking today: fished Bure above Mayton Bridge as trip to Bures on the Stour to be re-scheduled. River low, clear and with a cold wind. Perhaps not the best conditions for deadbaits, and two of the three pike hooked came as I twitched the eel section back. Fish ranged from micro jack size to about 5lb.

Finished off on Captains and had two slightly bigger fish which were both quite solid so they're beginning to fatten up for the winter.
