Les with GBF pike

Winter 2008/2009 Member Les Vaughan has been out and about on the canal again through the winter. In what is his first winter season for a long time, Les is delighted to have caught a nice pike and an nice perch, both at Great Bottom Flash. Readers should be aware that whilst there is no unhooking mat shown in these pictures, Les always uses a mat – and so should anybody who is fishing on the canal!
