Go to Top A Pike hide Beneath the Lilies

Posted: 4 May 2015

It was just after 12:20 when I was out in the sun staring into the water and saw a pike.


It must have been around 8" long. I know anglers always judge fish by weight, but I'm not an angler, so you'll always find me reporting length.


Over the next minute it moved slowly forward in the water. I normally reckon that pike stop with their head under a lily leaf. I hypothesise that this helps them to see better, without the sun's glare spoiling their vision. However, this one didn't do that, so maybe my idea is just nonsense.
