It's been a busy year for Teeside PAC

There's plenty going on up in the North-east if you're a pike angler at the moment.

Teeside and Darlington PAC RO Brian Carragher has just posted a report on last year's activities on their blog.

He writes: "The past year has been a year of measured growth and with some good fishing and successes along the way. Many members have had their best years fishing and the best recorded fish by a member was a magnificent fish of 29lb 15oz.

"Three other twenties were caught by members, two on club trips and both setting the record for biggest fish caught on a club trip until beaten by the other. Shane Patterson being the captor of the bigger at 23lb."

Mind you, it hasn't all been a tale of big fish.

"I have to hold my hands up to being the captor of the smallest pike at 34 grammes (one and quarter ounces) on double maggot when fishing for bits," adds Brian.

They stage monthly trips to waters all over the North of England and are close to clinching their own water.
