First timers

Francesco visited me recently looking to pick up some tips for his inland fishing trip this week. Although a passionate trout fly fisherman he's had this burning desire to catch a pike on the fly for sometime. So I took him to a couple of my favourite spots around the island .Conditions were blustery with 14m per sec winds yet it didn't put him off his game and he managed to catch this 80cm snotrocket on a brown/gold/silver flash streamer, which isn't a bad fish for your 1st pike on the fly.

This is the first of many I gather as he say's he's got the bug big time.
