Being an avid salmon and trout angler, fishing for Pike has always been on our radar but until recently we hadn’t had the opportunity to explore this exciting sport. Earlier this year we teamed up Loop team members Stuart Sutherland from FishX, Euan Millar and Matt Roberts and they kindly gave us an introduction into the world of Pike fly fishing.
Needless to say we were blown away by this exciting visual sport and now we always jump at the chance to head out for some affordable exciting pike fishing in wonderful venues around Scotland.
Together with some of the best Pike fishing specialists in the UK we joined up with Loop Tackle, The Lake of Menteith Fisheries and PAAS (Pike Anglers Alliance Scotland) to provide a LOOP Aktiv Predator Day, offering a free event to come and learn everything you need to know to get into the sport.
It was a memorable event with an amazing passionate group of people at the LOOP Aktiv Predator Day. It was wonderful to see somany people interested in fly fishing and pursuing Pike on the fly. The predator anglers that visited are a real vibrant community and an absolute pleasure to fish with.
A huge thank you to goes out to all the instructors for giving up their time to help out with the event and excellent guiding for many new fly fishers.
The new Marauder lines from LOOP were a huge success and when combined with the LOOP Q predator rods they were balanced perfectly for the guests to catch lots of pike.
The raffle was welcomed by all with some great prizes donated and we were able to raise £105 for the Get Hooked On Fishing Charity.
