Unless you’ve deep pockets you may care to choose somewhere different to Chew Valley Lake. 2021 pike season = £55.00 per session bank fishing and £120.00 per boat (2 people) !!

Hello, more expensive that trout fishing, check out Farmoor prices ? , Much prefer the Thames here, free fishing 👍

As a youngster I sacked off the trebles and started to use a single carp hook. 
never had any issues with losses and much easier to unhook with cold hands. 
 

anyone else do this ? 
 

Used to get out with my childhood telescopic rod a couple of spinners, a big float  and whatever fish was on offer on the counter.

I remember now what we did hole straight though table tennis ball then put a straw in hole and use the balsa glue that we had let after making model airplane round straw and sealed the hole in ball to make it water proof 

That’s the way I made my own floats in the 50’s, but I used a piece of split cane as the float stick. Used them for eal bobbing at the end of a sewer pipe.

Yes I also have been using 3/0 circle hooks for some time for pike.

 

Hello, that interesting , never heard of those and by all accounts a better hook for pike ? You can get semi circle to ? So what make do you recommend, ?? I buy my traces in packs of 25, so 25 hooks should be ideal this winter,
