I watched this on the iplayer this morning Mortimer & Whitehouse 'Gone Fishing' lovely poignant musings from the pair while they target tench on the broads, well worth a watch even if you don't like fishing.

Not sure what took me so long to happen upon this thread. Thanks for getting this going Double 0 soul. It is very interesting hearing about the fishing culture from the UK.

I am a huge fishing enthusiast mostly fly fishing for salmonoids though. I live in the finger lakes region of New York if anyone knows where that is. We get an awesome spawning run of fish every Spring and Fall. The Spring is mostly lake run rainbow trout some as large as 10lbs and the fall run is comprised of brown trout and Atlantic landlocked salmon. I am fairly close to Lake Ontario so in the fall I’ll fish the tributaries for king salmon,who get fairly massive, up to 40lbs is not unheard, and fish for steelhead in the winter there too. There are also lots stocked streams to hit in the in the summer monthswhen the water isn’t too warm.

It’s funny that this thread started off talking about pike fishing. One of the lakes nearby my house has a rather large northern pike fishery. I use to go with my dad all the time in the summer and catch them with moon eye minnows on spinner rods but I was just talking to my fishing buddy yesterday about going out on the canoe and targeting them with the fly rod. Could be tons of fun. I always remember them fighting like hell and being really big and aggressive fish.

Fantastic Cozzie, puts my efforts to shame.
Your images are not showing up...you can drag/drop them into the 'Message' box from imgur.

Here you go...







I was watching a youtube video of some lads catching enormous brown trout under a bridge somewhere in New York recently, amazing specimens!
Over here In the winter when its freezing cold the female pike are heavy with spawn and they sit on the bottom so as not to use up precious energy, you have to run the lure right in front of their nose to prompt a bite, reeling then in is like a dead weight.
In the summer when they are on the hunt for silver/bait fish they either on patrol or hang out in the margins waiting to attack, they hit everything that moves, the fight is incredible but their head is mainly bone so they shake your lure more often than not... i hooked 5 pike in the river this week and didn't land a single one Ouch

Cozzie- When you get some spare time can you give us a guided tour of your fishing tackle and maybe some pointers regarding the techniques you use to target different species? what bait are you using with the multiplier?

Oh awesome! Thx for doing that. I tried to just upload them from my iPad but they were too big so I tried the hyperlink thing. Good to kno I can just drag and drop. That will be much easier. It took me a bit to get that all put together last night. Haha.

I know some people who go ice fishing for pike and musky around here in the winters. It never really appealed to me it just always seemed to consist of sitting around starring into a hole in the ice ice for hours, not really catching much, in a tiny little hut during the coldest points of the winter. Seemed to be mostly an excuse to drink but I can find much more suitable means of justifying that haha.

I wondered if the video you saw was from Fall Creek in Ithaca, NY.   Fish there all the time. It’s about 20 min drive from my house and it gets one of the best brown runs in NY. If you post the link to it I could tell you.

I would love to do that. Time is a bit limited for me this time of year but I will try to do it soon. I don’t have a ton of gear but it would be fun to share.

Just had another look.. The part with the bridge was on the Niagara river NY, the large brownies were caught in a tributary/creek off lake Ontario, amazing fish but their novice fish handling skills were cringe-worthy enough for me not to post the link.
