Hi

Thanks for letting me in. Only been piking a couple of winters, still to break the magic 20, couple of 18’s as close as I’ve got so far. Looking to see if anyone around Gloucestershire is looking for a fishing buddy that I can learn from. Not after your spots I have a couple I use.

Hi and welcome aboard.
Please don't start your pike fishing career thinking a twenty pound pike is going to be regular capture because your going to be disappointed.
Think such fish as a summit of your success, if you manage one per year you will be doing well, yes sometimes they are like buses and come along all at once, but the majority of times they will be singular captures spread over a number of years.

Seek out unfished waters, use uncomplicated methods, read all you can on here and elsewhere, think through what might/will happen when you tighten to a take and nothing happens at all (when for a pike angler time stops still) as it will help you stopping your thoughts going haywire.
And
Remember the golden rule, NEVER EVER TELL ANYONE where your fishing or what your catching.

Big pike are not hard to catch, its finding them that's difficult!
