There‘s no doubting that the large shipping canals of Holland provide some of the most fantastic predator fishing within Europe. One such angler who makes the effort to travel to these huge expanses of water is Fox Rage consultant Pierre Johnen.
My angling year is always broken down in to months, then species and then venues. Without doubt my favorite species and venues has to be Chew valley reservoir for pike.
At this time of year it can be very challenging doing any type of fishing, especially lure fishing with the winter floods, temperatures and wind directions changing by the day.
