A Pikers Tale by Dave

                 A Pikers Tale
Another day dawns we both have a vision
Trev and Dave go out on a mission
to their favourite river they often go
where fearsome beasts doth lurk below
I find my swim it's good i'll bet
so I cast my smelt and the trap is set
it's cold and raw under cloudy skies
Which heralds the arrival of Karen's pies
but isn't it strange and somewhat odd
you get halfway through and your float will bob
as I wind right down it's almost gone
with upward strike, the fight is on
a shout goes out oh what joy
yes we're in oi oi oi
a twist of head with thrash of tail
it tries to flee but to no avail
before too long the weaker it gets
then a mate steps in with the trusty net
a shake of the hand and a pic for the web
a special moment it has to be said
a safe release oh lord up above
a dog has run off with Trevor's glove
come back bad girl hear the owner roar
she's never, not ever, done that before !
it's getting late the light grows dim
another great yell and Trev is in
he lands his fish with skill and care
congrats all round, he who dares
it's time to leave when all's said and done
the day has passed by so where has it gone
we may be mad, act like kids if you like
but you can't beat that feeling of catching a pike
With thanks to our wives we can't forget those
who pack up our lunch and wash fishy clothes
as for next season more new pb's it's clear
but until then Merry Christmas and
              A HAPPY NEW YEAR

This is an area of our web site that we will post any news items relating to our favorite sport, including details of new fishing venues, baits including secret ones that you feel are no longer secrets.

To start off the first item ( A new fishery is revealed in the heart of the Essex countryside)  A special thanks to Tim who read an article in The Anglers Mail regarding this little Gem known as Dawn's Vale, it is set in a partly wooded area and fishing can be had with a Day ticket booked in advance. Trev & Karen's Dad tried it out on 31st July 2007, a few pics below to wet your appetite after a walk round the lake on Sunday afternoon 29th July 2007.
