"In this book, Ken Whitehead's life-long commitment to pike fishing is described, from his boyhood when he was introduced to the old, brutal trimmers. Over many years since he has devised his own special rigs for tempting pike from a wide range of very different waters. His ideas on the different live and deadbaits and how to present them give a fascinating insight into the mind of an angler who has used his understanding of pike behaviour to seek and catch them from waters thought not even to hold the species." In this book the author shares his insights into the world of pike fishing based on more than fifty years experience. An interesting title written by an angler who started in the days when pike were considered vermin and gorge methods were common and has continued through to the modern days of catch and release. Chapters include: Early beginnings; Livebait and deadbaits; Spinners and plugs; Fast waters; Slow waters; Stillwaters; Tidal waters; The future.
