Among other subjects, he will be lifting the lid on recent predator fly fishing exploits in the build up to his debut book "Fly Fishing for Coarse Fish". Recently cited as "Britain's most promising angling writer" (Angling Times), this will be an evening not to miss.

The Fox backed specimen ace is back with another evening of impressive captures and useful advice on all things pike angling. This is your opportunity to pick the brains of the Drennan Cup winner, along with the chance to win exclusive tackle prizes on the night.


MEGA XMAS TACKLE SALE- Bring, buy and exchange tackle before the Christmas rush!

"LAIR OF THE WATER WOLF" -Following last years snowed off event, this is your chance to see the full version of BBC Filmmaker Dean Burman's brilliant underwater pike film.

DEVON BAITS CUP- The only pike match where every competitor receives a pack of FREE BAIT! Also some great prizes for the top 3 anglers.

ROLL YOUR OWN... Fly and lure making evening.

Dont forget the convention

There's no better way to kick off your winter campaign than the Pike Anglers Club's convention.

That's the message from Britain's top predator club, as it gets set for this year's bash at Kettering on Saturday, October 1.

"It's going to be a great day out for pike anglers of all ages, with something for both seasoned hands and beginners," said organiser Colin Goodge.

"We've got some top speakers, all the latest kit and everything you need to get your winter off to a good start."

New attractions include a programme of free junior teach-ins the PAC hopes will inspire the pike anglers of the future.

Top names like Mick Brown, Julian Chidgey, Eric Edwards and Denis Moules will be showing the youngsters everything from how to tie a trace, to how to make their own lures.

There's plenty for the grown-ups too - including speakers Dave Horton, Micky Jones and Stephen Harper for starters, in the 500-seat theatre at Kettering Conference Centre.

There'll also be stalls with all the latest tackle - including for the first time a tank where you can check out the actions of the latest lures from Fox. Bargain hunters will be making a beeline for the secondhand tackle and lure stalls.

Mick Brown will also be launching his new book Mick Brown, Professional Pike Angler.

There's free admission for accompanied juniors - and a free "goody bag" of tackle essentials for those joining the club on the day, at the reduced price of £7.50.

Supporters Pikemaster and Pikepro will be donating a pair of forceps, float, lure trace, twin treble trace and other rig bits worth £20 for every junior who signs up on the day.

The Convention is being held at Kettering Conference Centre on Saturday, October 1.

Parking's free. Doors open 9am. Admission is £10 adult members, £15 non-members. For more information see the PAC website,/ or follow @pikelines on Twitter.

New Venue

Ok the new venue is confirmed as the mill on the exe in Exeter, who have very kindly let us have use of their downstairs room on the last tuesday of the month. This means that the first 2 meetings will be on October 25th and November 29th. We may have to have the December meeting slightly earlier to fit around the Christmas festivities but we will announce that nearer to the date.
We will be announcing more details of the first meeting shortly.

Quick Update

Hello everybody just a quick post to say we havent forgotten this page , the PAC or you. With the new predator season looming we are working to get everything in place. We are looking at a couple of venues in Exeter as the general consensus seemed to be that The Barge was too far out in the sticks and this was affecting attendance. We are also in the process of organising some fishing events and with this in mind we have secured a sponsor for a pike match (venue, dates, format etc to be decided) who has offered us some great prizes. So watch this space and hopefully we should have more news including the name of the new venue very shortly.
