We don't need a pike cull - Barrie

Leave things as they are, we don't need a pike cull. That's the message from PAC founder, former club president, pike expert and author Dr Barrie Rickards.

In his column on the FISHINGmagic website, he has this message for the cull-em brigade: "Nobody likes these upsurges of small pike but the way to get around it is counterintuitive to many anglers; either you must leave things as they are but do not remove any pike, or you put in a few big pike."
