Pike meets pike, and Pike wins the day!

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

APTLY-named Lyla Pike had a bril­liant ses­sion on the Not­ting­ham Canal, banked her-first ever name­sake in the shape of this 7lb 2oz spec­i­men.

Fish­ing the Cas­tle Ma­rina stretch, Lyla and her dad Kane opted to cast a pun­gent dead­bait be­tween the near bank and a moored canal boat, and they didn’t have to wait long be­fore the slim­line preda­tor was hooked and rag­ing through the swim.

Af­ter a short but nervy scrap, six-year-old Lyla had her prize safely in the net. Con­grat­u­la­tions Lyla!
