Salford Friendly Anglers City Centre Pike Fishing Trip
Saturday saw Mike, Nick and myself roaming the canals and basins of city centre Manchester in search of pike. Mike did the business for the team, catching a nice little jack, whilst Nick and myself plugged our way through the murky water, observing a variety of detritus that I will not elaborate on. My best catch of the day was a Dunlop golf umbrella that gave an excellent account of itself, whilst Nick bagged up, quite literally, catching a variety of plastic bags, all of which were beautifully conditioned. Anyone interested in joining the world's oldest angling society - The Salford Friendly Anglers Society [est 1817], please follow this link. It's free and has the best interests of the River Irwell and it's environs at heart. Take a look at the website: www.salfordfriendlyanglers.co.uk
