Old river irlam pike get together.

Well today's was a trip a week or two in the making as a number of Salford friendly anglers and maggot drowners seemed keen to have a pike fishing social and with Mike organising letting people know and sending out invites it promised to be a good day out fish or no fish. The venue was the old river in irlam.

I was out of the front door around 7 and it was COLD and dark but I was looking forward to the day. Mike and I arrived around 7.30 and got tackled up and within 10 minutes I had a small jack of about a pound firtst catch on a small roach fished mid water. Second cast another take and a lost fish. Here is the swim I was in infront of the pub of course!

To cut a long story short I went on to catch a further 4 fishover the next 2 hours or so to make it 5 fich in total with 3 lost fish so a cracking morning despite the fact they were small fish still great fun. The best fish was this on of around 5 pound or so

The afternoon passed for me fishless but other members of the get together caught some cracking fish including a superb 12 pounder and Tom managed his first ever pike. A great day and I would have had fun if I hadn't had a bite. Its superb to spend time with such enthusiastic anglers and the banter was superb. The mysterious float that appeared in my productive swim when I returned from a short walk was surprising!!

Thanks to all involved for making it a great day.


  1. Nicely done, old sausage.

  2. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX suspension trainer line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX For Sale, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX Suspension Training Sale of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the cheap trx company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx for sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the TRX Workouts Sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
