Today I went fishing for pike at the grounds of the local university.
My fishingbuddy Joop had a special permit to fish there and
was able to take one guest angler with him.

The campus is littered with small heavy overgrown lakes that
house pike in various sizes.
I had two hits on the fly and managed to haul in one little specimen
who hit the fly when I retrieved it close to the bank.

Pike nr.2 shot out from a weedbed to nail the fly but after a few jumps the 
hook came out.
Joop was fishing a streamer with a spinningrod to fish those parts of the lakes that where out of reach for flyfishing.
He had several hits but was not able to hook any fish.

Todays weather was reasonable, 40F temperature with gray skies and light rain.
