Happy Christmas from the PAC. We hope you'll get the chance to get out and catch a few over the Festive Season.
There's nothing quite like blanking in your new thermal socks or one-piece suit with a hangover the size of Wales.
Friends are what makes pike fishing special for many of us and we're remembering those who've passed on this year.
David Overy, Vic Bellars and Gerry Castles all meant a lot to those lucky enough to know and fish with them.
They were all big-hearted pike anglers, who were more than happy to share their love of our sport.
Next year's not going to be an easy one. There are some serious challenges ahead.
Our president is going to be outlining some of these in a New Year Message to pike anglers everywhere.
You'll read it here first.We'd like to thank everyone who's helped the club and the wider cause of pike fishing this year.
Please help us spread the word in 2007.
