The second edition of the Pike Challenge is now over, we expected really tough fishing but our really brave and skilled competitors did the job !

The total number of pikes was lower than last year but in general they have caught bigger fish. Saddly, no meter+ but we can proudly mention pikes of 94, 95 & 96cm.

This last one was hooked by David Di Marco and brought him the biggest fish’s trophy.

In general it was again a great success and we are happy and proud to organize such an event in Belgium. You can be sure that there will be a third edition…

We might change the way we do it to be able to accept more competitors, we have some ideas but nothing is decided yet…


The last thing I would like to say is thank you !

  • Thanks to all the participants who brought their good mood during the day,
  • Thanks to our sponsors who made this event possible : Vision, FlyScene, Jacquet-Pêche, Smartlures and Partridge of Redditch,
  • Thanks to the lake of Bambois for being such a great place,
  • Thanks to the guys of the Rodtrip team & friends who are always available to help…
