Blood pumping!

Have had a couple of friends over from France for the last couple of days staying with us and I took them out for a day on the water over the weekend. The weather wasn't ideal due to scorching temperatures and the fishing was extremely tough. Still we found an area that held several decent pike all around the 85 - 96cm mark. Davie here with his 1st pike on the fly ever. We lost 3 more that were slightly bigger but faught well while still attached to the line.

Water clarity at the moment is around 8m so watching the pike from 15m away dart out the weeds like excoset missiles got the blood pumping more than usual. Two of these Olive Mirror image highties did all the damage.
