I don't think a 2ft pike weighs 20lbs though! There's a good picture if you follow the link. He shows you what a casting bubble is in the photo. lolol
That big fish ate my finger!

COMMENT ON THIS STORY
A FISHERMAN needed 12 stitches after being attacked by a 2ft PIKE.
Luke Gorman, 24, was left in agony after the fish gnawed to the bone of his right index finger.
He had been filling a float in a lake when it swam up. Another angler rushed him to hospital.
Luke said: â€œOne second my hand was in the water, the next it looked like it had been in a mincer. I could see the bone before it all filled up with claret.â€
He was attacked while catching carp near his home in Windsor, Berks.
Luke added: â€œThe pike must have been 20lb. The next time we meet it will end up on a plate.â€
