Im sure that it would fly off the shelves if you did decide to go down that route again Dave.

With retirement looming and more time on my hands, I'd certainly give it some thought, Adam?

I think I was fortunate with the timing of Ultimate Pike - it was relatively easy to get the material together and it made a few quid too.

(I'm not sure either would happen these days face)

David's was a very good contribution. One day I saw David on that water where he caught his biggie. I had a 47.5 inch pike that weighed no where near his 38lber.

You caught yours from the same venue, Ady?

We all know how much weights can fluctuate? I once caught the same Pike at 26.8 and 31.15 in the same winter.

I never fished it myself but BIG Phil Wakeford and I walked to within view of it one day (April 94), whilst exploring!

Dave. DO's pike would have been about 47 inches +/- 1 inch as a guess. I have checked my photos with the picture of DO's pike in your book, and it's hard to say for sure (it was p*****g it down when I caught my fish so there is some lens fogging). I doubt it's the same fish. I fished it for the first time from spring 1998. I know Phil was interested in it. It was a good venue.
