Trip to Loch Awe

A invitation to Loch Awe from friends found me fishing for trout and perch from a small pier using  size 6 hook, bubble float, 8lb line and a bunch  of worms, after  10 minutes i noticed my bubble float take a dive ,striking into the fish i soon realised i had hooked into a Pike. No way i was going to get this fish in as i had no wire trace on were my first thoughts. But after 10 minutes i still the fish on when i seen it first time and the hook was just in the corner of its mouth.
After another   5 minutes I  finally beached it. My line finally gave out but i managed  to grab its tail,
                                                                The fish weighed 22 pounds
