What A Cracker

Congratulations to 12 year old Kaden McCarthy from Salford, on the capture of this magnificent 20lb+ pike from the Rochdale Canal in the City Centre of Manchester.

Manchester Pike

A superb fish, caught on ledgered sprat and a dead cert winner of Salford Friendly Anglers annual “fish of the year” competition.

If any adult angler submits an entry for this competition between now and are Xmas do, they will be drummed out of the club.

If you’re thinking that this was a lucky one “one off” capture, then you’d be very mistaken. This is Kadens 2nd 20lb+ pike from the centre of Manchester this year, and he can also claim more feathers in his cap with the capture of some decent carp and chub this summer too.

So, John Wilson watch out, Martin Bowler move over – keep your eyes peeled next time you’re on the bank for our own superstar in the making Kaden McCarthy.
