very proud to announce the the guys at piketrek are now my new blog sponsors 

so why piketrek  , well to be honest ive never gone down the route of big sponsors and having to abide by there rules and to praise stuff ive never used before nope not me , i have a long history with greg at piketrek and have always supported them and the amazing pike saber pike fly rod which i have used since first trying one some mabey 8 odd years ago and to be honest nothing comes close in my opinion and that to me speaks volumes

also let me make this quite clear , i do not receive and would never take any financial incentive to promote there goods they are just a great company with down to earth pike tying and fishing gear , greg like me tells it like it is and i respect him for that in this day and age.

and yes there is a lot of companies out there selling pike tying gear but pike trek has always been a company that looks for new innovations in fly tying at a great price , ive seen comanys come and go but piketrek are still there doing what they do best . pike fly tying material and the pike saber 

so im delighted to have them on-board and its a decision ive not taken lightly  

so if your looking for great  original materials please check them out at 
so what does it all mean , well basically ill be showcasing piketreks materials in my tying videos on youtube and fish that have been caught on them both from me and my clients , im not going to be ramming stuff down your throat though and ill be also be reviewing other stuff i find .

you see ive always championed the smaller companies and especially those that provide outstanding service  especially small business because these days of ebay and the like, everyman and his dog is selling stuff  online these days but few of them specialize in pike only , and piketrek have always been great pike anglers and actually get out there and fish with there own products greg is no exception and has had some fantastic fish to his name including some monster perch and some cracking river fish

so there you have it and im looking forward to working with one of the best companies for pike gear out there so please take a moment and go and have a look for yourself
