Working for the future of Pike and Pike Fishing
I'm not sure about all things Pike (though there are some SERIOUSLY big pike in the Wye) but I do know that the Daily Express isn't a reliable source of news - in fact, it's probably the worst 'newspaper' in the UK (yes, worse than the Mail or the Star) and you can't believe a word in there. Utter garbage.
Hmm, is this on a par with last year when they forecast a "barbecue summer"? The forecaster's can't accurately predict beyond tomorrow if truth be told, get out and fish while you can, you might get hit by a bus next week!
