reading this book hasn't put you right off
lure fishing for pike, then you might want
to find out a little more about the subject!
The Lure Anglers' Society of Great Britain
was formed in late 1992, on a shoestring by
Malcolm Bannister, Barrie Rickards, Geoff
Latham and myself in response to a new wave
of interest in this branch of angling. In
less than three years L.A.S. membership swelled
to four hundred or so. Not all L.A.S. members
are pike anglers, some fish only in the sea,
others are primarily game anglers. No matter
what species you prefer to catch there is
always something to be learned from using
lures for a different quarry. The L.A.S. not
only produces a quarterly magazine, but also
holds lure fishing events around the country
and an annual conference where you can meet
other lure fishers and exchange ideas face
to face. Apart from joining the L.A.S. I would
suggest that you read all you can on the subject
of lure fishing, and not just for pike. When
it comes to reading material the list that
follows is as good a starting point as any.
