In which my talent for catching small pike is rewarded with glittering prizes from the land of the rising sun.

Not much to report here for me since the end of the river season. I've tried luring for perch a bit in the canal and secret gravel pit with a couple small pike to show for it. I've also got off the mark for tench with a couple from Newlands Angling Club.
Today I have just returned from a splendid event. The Lure Anglers Society event at Newport Pagnell Fishing Association's Sherington Lakes. There were competitions sponsored by Major Craft and Sunline with predator fish caught being judged on the basis of length rather than weight. There were prizes of Major Craft (smart Japanese Tackle) rods for longest pike and perch and an overall total length competition with prizes of Sunline braid/hats/trophies up for grabs.
