First pike for Molly

Last week we had the pleasure of guiding US visitors Molly and her Dad Brian. The two of them had booked two half days with us and manged to catch a few nice pike on both days. While the real big pike proved elusive on the days (bar the one that got away on the first day), they nevertheless enjoyed catching these… Tight Lines!
