    Pike fin damage

    I was pike fishing last week and caught three pike, two of which had fin damage on the trailing edge of the dorsal fin. Part of the fin rays were missing and the damaged ends were pink/red in colour....

    Re: Light jig use continued

    It's interesting to read your views on the design of light jigs.

    Can you give us a few examples of the designs that are most effective for attracting fish, perhaps with photos?

    Anglers are good at complaining to each other about problems such as cormorants, pollution, abstraction. But I don't think many anglers want to take part in surveys, because it will take too much...

    Thanks, I've bought a year book and ordered plans showing the access to all the fisheries which the club has.

    Thank you for the advice, it seems worth joining. I understand that there's about 3000 yds of fishing and three car parks, which should give easy access.
  9. Fishing the River Nidd near Wetherby, North Yorks

    I'm thinking of joining the Bradford No. 1 Angling Association so I can fish its stretch of the River Nidd at Cowthorpe, near Wetherby.

    Re: Baitcasters

    You're right - if you normally cast with your right hand, it's better to use a baitcaster with the handle on the left hand side of the rod. This is with the rod held so that the reel and the rings...

    I recommend you change from mono to braid. I changed over about 15 years ago. I use braid of about 35 lb breaking strain. Although it's expensive the advantages are:

    I pike fished for many years using a deadbait mounted on two treble hooks on a wire.

    Generally it is effective, apart from when a flying treble gets tangled up in the net, which often happens....

    Re: Shaving off the ounces

    I weigh fish in the landing net, I don't take a separate weighing net.

    I don't use a camera. I think fish are out of the water too long if photos are taken.

    I used to weigh fish with spring...
