Catch This! Blog

Welcome to a new season...and a hint of what we do (catch fish)

Here we go again. Its the beginning of February, the Beagle.(the bigger boat with a cabin and a kettle) is cleaned, painted and serviced ready for the Windermere ‘spring’ fishing.

For those who don’t know, most of the big pike shown on this site are from either Scotland or Windermere as Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite just do not produce monster pike specimens in great numbers these days. But if you know where to find …
