Why I was an hour late for dinner

Firstly a warning: those of a Photographic rather than a Piscatorial bent may want to skip this post...

This was the excuse I had to use yesterday when I was unexpectedly delayed in getting home for my dinner. Ron, who I know through the club where we go fly fishing, had hooked something pretty big and needed help in landing it. About 50 minutes later, a 14lb pike came to the surface - not the large trout he had been hoping for, but impressive all the same. The pike will be transferred to another lake where there are fewer trout to make it fat!
