I doubt that there's many youngsters out there who can claim to have landed a double as their fist ever pike, but young George who is only 10 years old certainly managed that with this beauty.
George was fishing the King's Sedgemoor Drain with his dad on Sunday when we arrived to fish the International and hooked and landed the pike shortly after we started the match.
I was almost directly opposite him when I saw him strike and play the fish to the waiting landing net, and heard his whoops of joy when he saw just how big she was.
I have no doubt at all that young George is hooked on Pike now; and perhaps in a few years time might even be attending our Team Selection Final's.
Well done George, and here's to many more pike in the years to come.
