Meet Ville Toivonen, an expert professional angler from Finland and in this opening episode, Ville is spinning for Pike in Teijo National park in South est Finland. Its a warm sunny day in April, conditions look good and the Pike haven't started spawning yet. Ville has 3 or 4 areas of the lake that he wants to concentrate on and firstly takes a moment to talk us through his tackle and the lures he'll be using. Getting the right colour combinations is crucial for success and Ville shows us what he likes with Wobblers and Jigs at this time of year. Ville drives a couple of kilometres from the pontoon and finds a bay where a small river enters the lake, which he knows is shallow and where the Pike like to hold up before spawning time. Starting in the mouth of the bay, he sees several fish on the Sonar, so drops the electric motor and starts fishing. With no luck here, Ville moves to a channel between two islands which he's confident will hold Pike and starts fishing with a Rapala Fire Tiger lure. He gets a hit straight away which drops off unfortunately but his confidence is up and he soon lands his first fish of the day, a small but brightly marked Pike. Moving to another likely area, he starts fishing with a Wobbler in slightly coloured water but soon changes to the Fire Tiger wwith instant results and another nice Pike. As the sun sets, Ville reflects on a decent day on the water where moving locations was the key to success.
