Last roll of the dice throws up a pike

There aren't meant to be any pike in this place, officially. After fishing places which do have pike in all day and only managing to catch a large fertiliser bag, I thought I'd try the old borrow pit for half an hour on the way home.

Tucked behind the retirement bungalows with their wind chimes and manicured lawns, it doesn't exactly scream pike as dusk falls on the platforms and the picnic benches.

Three or four casts later, the rod's got other ideas, as one hits the lure so hard it nearly pulls it out of my hand.


  1. A pike at last may i have my lucky hat back please

  2. and I thought there was none left in there!
