Italian Pikers Photo Gallery

Yes, my pals from Abruzzo in Italy have departed the Emerald Isle, and they had a fantastic six days pike fishing across the Midlands.

At times it was hard going, in choppy conditions on our bigger lakes, but we managed to catch a huge number of double figure pike, including a 24lbs fish on the fly for Stefano Balisario, while Andrea Palma had a cracker measuring 122cm from Ree. Sandro Colangeli, along with Dario Labricciosa, Tiziano Pinocchio and Simone Antonioli also boated a number of very big pike on lures. The lads had a super time and were guided by Barry Darby, my younger brother J.J and yours truly.

GUIDING & PHOTO/GALLERY. I leave you with a truly remarkable photo gallery of our weeks fishing and as you can see it was all hands on deck as we boated a number of very big pike. I will be guiding and pleasure fishing right across the Midlands as we drift into the summer months. Keep an eye on for daily updates, weekly angling reports and photographs plus special features will be posted on
