32lb 8oz Chew Pike Ends 17 Year Wait!

After years watching others catch the fish of their dreams, it was finally Terry Theobald’s turn earlier this week.

“I have fished Chew every year since day 2 of the first pike trials and I was beginning to think it would never happen… Thankfully it did!”

Theo caught his prized specimen weighing 32lb 8oz with the help of 60lb E-Sox Piker Braided Reel Line, 40lb Super Trace Pike Wire and size 4 semi-barbed Extra Strong Pike Trebles baited with a smelt.

Martin Bowler who was fishing with Theo at the time commented: “There is no man that deserves a Chew ’30’ more than my mate Terry Theobald. He has fished the reservoir for 17 years since the very start and I am overjoyed to report that I have just netted a 32lb 8oz pike for a shaking The.”
