When host Lawrence Pyne joins pike enthusiast Drew Price on Bristol Pond (Winona Lake) for a day of pike fishing, they break out the fly rods in pursuit of these great predators. Then, we accompanied a young hunter and his mentor to witness the experience of a first hunt. Lastly, Outdoor Journal visits to see what students learned from raising fish and then attend the release, complete with ceremonial reading of poems by the students.
