PAC website gets 40,000 visits a month

Traffic on the Pike Anglers Club website doubled last season. Monthly visits soared from around 20,000 to more than 40,000 throughout the winter, when most of us are pike fishing.

The PAC site, designed and maintained by webmaster Dave Lumb, has been around in one guise or another since 2001.

It contains a wealth of information about the pike, recommended rigs and tackle, fishing tips and advice on how to unhook and handle them safely. It also features details of PAC activities up and down the country, including our popular special members events.

Today it also offers forums, where members can chat online and interact with each other and the club's committee, a member's gallery to show off you new PB or share a memorable capture, and our first departures into online video clips.

Rolling news headlines bring you all the latest on pike fishing as it happens, while if you don't want to keep checking back every day, you can subscribe to our blog and we'll send you an e-mail instead.

You'll also find links to more than a dozen blogs run by different regions up and down the country, covering news of their meetings and other activities.

Check it out here if you haven't stopped by lately.

****We're trying something new with the PAC Blog this week. If you read down to the bottom of a story, you'll now see a little white envelope symbol.

Click on that and you'll get a box pop up where you can enter a mate's e-mail address and send them a link to it. Clever or what..?
