Gwyn Davies Specimen River Wye Pike

Fordingbridge, Hampshire angler Gwyn Davies won a weekly Drennan Cup award in Angling Times recently for this photo of a specimen River Wye Pike!

Gwyn floatfished a Sardine on 28lb Drennan Green Pike Wire hard on the river bed, using size 6 semi-barbless Partridge trebles. The only bite of the day came at around 10.30am and resulted in this 29lb 12oz fish!

“The fish stayed deep for most of the fight, but provided a few scary moments when it neared the net by thrashing half out of the water” explained Gwyn.
