The question I originally asked was how many 25lb plus pike you have had Mark. You said 'around ten'. Can you give an exact figure now? And how many have you had in say the last ten years? I still cant remember seeing any of them in your articles, which I usually make a point of reading. It would be nice to see a few pictures of those of the ten that weren't from Ivor's place or that Old West fish.

Not knowing how long ago that one fromthe Old West was I reckon it might just sneak in and would probably be the only one.

And no been too busy.

You back in gainful employment now then Mark?

The Old West one must be close to twenty years ago surely? Or my memory is becoming seriously jumbled. Image

Sorry to hear that Mark. It must be a nightmare trying to find work out there at the moment. Have you anything specific in mind job wise?

Tell me about it! This will probably be the only unfrozen part of the winter and I'm working seven day weeks for the rest of the month. Got one day's leave left and will be on the bank for a day with Andy O in November. Other than that I'll have to wait until the works dies off. In the building trade you have to get it while you can, especially in the winter months.

Glad to hear you've got plenty on. Image

E.T 2.3

Dave horton 3.2

mick brown 3.5

Al rawlings 3.5

mark ackerley 3.5

nige williams 3.7

nev 3.9

B.P 4.8

Andy,
It means you've had a lot of low/scraper 20's. Hardly worth landing, in future try and shake 'em off, this might improve your ratio... Image Image Image Image Image

Perhaps Max doesn't anymore! :oops: :lol:
