Luke is hooked by that monster of freshwaters, the pike.

Author Luke Jennings writes about a lifetime of fantastic fishing and fishing mentors, which is abridged in five parts by Katrin Williams:

1.

He is hooked by that monster of freshwaters - the pike.

Read by Nigel Hastings

Producer Duncan Minshull

I've come to fish downstream of here, in a place I've been tipped off about.

My source is Dejohn.

Most fishermen will tell you anything, just for the hell and geniality of it, but Dejohn's information is usually good.

Aged fourteen and a habitual truant, he knows every inch of this stretch.

We're not friends, exactly, but we talk."

Author and Dance critic of the Observer, Luke Jennings, has a lifelong interest in fishing.

And in this memoir cum natural history he describes the sort of place, solitary, ramshackle, and possibly dangerous, for hunting down that shark of freshwaters - the pike.

It's somewhere near three in the morning and he's on a dark and dank stretch of canal near Kings Cross Station.

But that's just pike.

More glorious surroundings typify his hunt for trout and salmon, and in his pages he recalls the childhood passion for nature and deep waters that got him started.

He also recalls the mentors that helped him become adept at casting a line, and maybe, just maybe, hooking one of those big bad pike."
