Few pike anglers can claim to be equally at home when fishing rivers, lakes, gravel pits, and lochs. Many can boast a mastery of one type of water, but only someone who has fished as widely and exhaustively as Paul Gustafson has the ability to catch specimen fish consistently from all four.
With unique rigs of his own devising, items of tackle of his own invention, and scientific discoveries about what pike see and how they can detect without using their eyesight, the author has opened the door to new techniques. A pioneer of night fishing for pike, with remarkable success, he is a firm believer that barometric pressure with light levels play an important part in determining their movements, even to the point where success and failure on a given water can be predicted by studying the weather.
