I described previously briefly on the season that I have behind me and the frustration I’ve had with the fact that despite having way more fishing days this season and despite the fact that I’ve never caught so many pike on the fly during one season (one reason of course being due to the increase in fishing days) I still haven’t got a single fish close to the magic 10 kg mark.
So with that in mind I have decided to go on a mission. To start a campaign that won’t stop until I have reached my goal. 2014 is the year I turn 40 years old. And I won’t stand for not having caught a +10 kg pike on the fly before I turn forty!
I will fish more days, more waters and with more flies than ever before. I will travel to where ever I need to go. Fish hard rain, hard wind, snow, hailstorms or tsunamis. I will not stop for anything to reach my goal. My call now goes out to all my pike fly fishing friends all over Sweden. Who will help me reach my goal of catching my dream fish on a fly next season? Who will scribe his or her name in the history books by guiding me to my trophy pike? Who will join me in my quest for glory, massive amounts of sharp teeth and immortality? Who will let me in to their most secret “big pike spots” just to see me fulfill my life long dream?
That’s right, I hereby declare 2014 to be the Year of the pike. And the hunt for that big pike starts NOW!
