CHIDGEY SNAPS UP A PIKE BEST

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

PER­SONAL bests have tum­bled in an­other in­cred­i­ble week’s pike fish­ing at Chew Val­ley Lake.

Ju­lian Chidgey was de­lighted when he boated a huge 34lb 14oz pike (right) thanks to the use of an un­der­wa­ter cam­era that he at­tached to his rig dur­ing a prior visit to the Som­er­set venue.

“I used a Water-wolf cam­era and I saw pike in­ves­ti­gat­ing and pick­ing up my bait with­out giv­ing me any in­di­ca­tion at all,” said the lo­cal an­gling con­sul­tant.

“So this time I scaled down my hooks and baits to give a more del­i­cate pre­sen­ta­tion and it worked a treat.”
