A short film by Ian May featuring Gilly Bate, Winston and Zac fly fishing for brown trout and grayling on Hampshire's delightful river Itchen.
A compilation of some of the best pike fly fishing days during the winter of 2013/2014. Fishing large bodies of water from the float tube in search of those massive northern pikes. Cold days, hard wind and large areas makes it a challenging fishery. Not only your endurance will get tested but also your gear.
For such an undertaking we use Loop Cross and Booster rods, Hatch and Loop reels and fish with di7 sinking lines, Searching the depths on our fish finders and trying to spot potential hotspots where these massive beast lie in ambush. If you're lucky you might see a fish on your finder but it's all about bottom structures.
These waters contain loads of pike and days where we land one or two pike over a meter are no exception.
Many thanks to Vincent Derks from 0031flyfishing for his help and spending valuable fishing on filming!
