Sam Honeywood caught this fine-looking 17lb 1oz pike on a smelt dead bait. Sam was at a stretch of river in Norwich nice and early and managed to catch this fish within the hour. His friend James Hubbard managed to land one around 9lb as well.

So, what was so special for you anglers fishing in the Norfolk Broads and rivers during 2015?
