Piketrek is a specialist Pike Fishing Company run by Anglers for Anglers. We enjoy all forms of fishing, but enjoy fly fishing for pike above all other forms of the sport. We have yet to catch that 40 pounder between us, but we know it's coming . . . .
Our team is an unlikely (or likely ) combination of Uncle and Nephew from the midlands.
Both Ben and Greg - as we like to be called have fished from an early age.
Greg taught Ben to cast a fly on a park in Derby when he was 10 years old. Now, at 36 Ben is still rubbish at casting, but despite having no timing and all the grace of an elephant ballet dancing he has caught Pike on the Fly in excess of 20lb. However his biggest pike is 28lb, caught on a deadbait when he was just 11. He is hoping to beat it this winter with a PIKESABER.
Greg caught his personal best Pike on the Fly this year at Willington Reservoir. It weighed in at 29lb. It's a shame he was trout fishing at the time. . . . Or Ben would let him count it :)
Greg has fished for England at international level. He was part of the winning team in the England v France Carp Fishing Tournament in 2005. He caught a Carp which added to the weight. As he describes it he 'scored a goal for England'. If you can liken catching fish to scoring goals he has filled a lot of nets. He ran his own successful Carp Fishing Holiday business from 1996 to 2001. If you went on a Carp Fishing holiday to France or Holland during this time you've probably met Greg, or at least know someone who has. He still visits France on an occasional basis. He prefers to fish with a rod in his hands these days, besides, he misses his dogs when he's away.
So, as you see, we are both passionate about our fishing. We enjoy the products that we sell, we enjoy making them, testing them, and seeing others enjoy them.
All of our products have been well tested (sometimes to destruction) by ourselves and our friends. Some of whom we have known for years, and some, probably like yourself is a friend of the future.
If you would like to get in touch, to discuss anything relating to our products, fishing or just for a chat, please use our contact form. We will be only happy to speak to you.
Ben and Greg, Piketrek
