CHIDGEY SNAPS UP A PIKE BEST
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.”
