After telling my dad that a 2 hr attempt would be futile after a few previous failed attempt i decided to give it a try.
the stretch was busy with about 10 anglers mainly pikers over a half a mile stretch - dad and i took a unfashionable peg which i new had produced pike close to an overhanging tree in the past.
I remember pulling a pike out of the favoured peg last winter to be told by a guy on this peg he had 3!!!
The only run of the 2hrs - a great fight and a 9lber - felt great to be proved wrong - thanks dad.
