Second only to carp fishing in terms of its popularity, piking continues to be of increasing interest not only in the United Kingdom and Ireland, but also elsewhere in Europe and in North America. Not surprisingly, therefore, the demand for expert information about how to catch large pike more effectively is also growing, and this book will be welcomed by pike anglers everywhere.
Big Pike includes a chapter by Bob Church, a seasoned pike fisherman and highly acclaimed all-round angler, together with contributions by four accomplished pike fishermen: Gord Burton, Neville Fickling, Mike Green and Barrie Rickards. The contributors reveal their enthusiasm for their chosen sport, their skills and tactics they use, and the sheer enjoyment they gain from piking.
