Wild Fish!

Hillend angler Alex Wilkie contacted me recently and sent me a pic of his breath taking Pike which he caught at Hillend Loch last season. Alex entered his capture into the Daily Record Fish of the week competition which he deservedly won. Alex fishes regularly for Pike on the fly at Hillend and has made a bit of a name for himself in angling circles. Last year a National Angling magazine ran a feature on Alex and his love of Pike on the fly. We are very lucky to have Alex as a member at Hillend as hopefully he will be able to educate those anglers among us at Hillend who quite simply are ignorant in all aspects of these most beautiful and wild of all fish that lurk in our Hillend Loch.

  1. i remember fishing hillend with my 2 mates a couple of seasons ago and we met this guy as he brought the boat in to land another incredible pike,similar in length but a bit thinner! Good to see he's still out there catching monsters on the fly. Well done m8 hope we cross paths again someday, and hopefully you'll be landing another fine specimen like this one. tight lines.
