Catch of the day

Ivan Keeney catches a 47-inch, 29.7 pound pike at Smith Lake from his canoe. Read the full story HERE . Although I'm chuffed for the fella for catching such a fine specimen,I have to say that I'm a tad disappointed that this big old girl didn't go back. She must have been totally exhausted having to fight for over an hour for her life. Its all be and well targeting pike on the fly,as long as you have the right equipment. a 5wt - 6wt rod doesn't cut it i my eyes. Still this is fishing and I'm not going to take Ivan's moment away from him and a fish of a lifetime.

It's sad that we have to kill something to get a record. It's not the biggest one caught on the fly but it's the biggest one killed on the fly in North America.
