Just half an hour af­ter tak­ing to this five-mile-long lake on a wet and windy day, Archie Mor­ris hooked this 17 lb 4 oz pike, which “fought like a wild dog, pulling my boat round for 20 min­utes,” on a tra­di­tional jig that re­sem­bled an old-fash­ioned spoon, at the south­ern end of the lake, drift­ing and cast­ing round the mar­gins.
