Bristol Avon - Melksham and Chippenham

Peg 17 Melksham
4lb 4oz
2nd in section
58 fished

I play my fish quite hard, as the river was full of weed and therefore gave it some on decent gear, unfortunately came back with a scale, so god knows what I foul hooked, i don't believe it to be a pike?!?!

Pike let go of the perch.  Lost a 10oz perch to pike...

Pike were a massive problem.  I honestly believe there's loads of roach, but didn't wanna feed as they were going to get eaten.  I almost got one of the pike in (wouldn't count) and it was double figures.
