With the close season on rivers fast approaching, now's the time to give running water a go before they shut at midnight on March 14th.This pic proves you only need a minute in the right place at the right time too. Angling Trust National Enforcement Manager Dilip Sarkar caught this awesome 20lb 7oz river pike on a local stretch of the Severn in a quick one-hour session within 10 minutes of casting out! Dilip told us "I knew it was a good fish immediately and it fought like a demon! The pike measured 42 inches long and had a huge head."

If you need a bit of extra encouragement to #GetOutThere and #GetFishing for pike or zander, and fish the rivers Severn, Warkwickshire Avon or Wye, then get involved with the Severn Basin Predatory Fish Study - you'll be given free training and an Environment Agency recording kit to report your captures for this important exercise in understanding more about pike, zander and the environment they live in.
