Graham Verral targeted Simpson’s Valley’s predators using float-fished sprat to tempt a fine pike of 23lb 6oz.

Pike are traditionally a fish of the autumn and winter months and the pleasing site of a red tipped float sitting optimistically upon the surface is one of the great joys of the season especially when the float trembles before sliding delightfully beneath the surface. Those few seconds before setting the hook are always full of tension and expectation. Then with luck comes that solid resistance of a big pike followed by a might swirl, bent rod and singing reel!
