5. Chapter on sight and vision, what colours pike actually see. Three of the world’s leading fish scientists helped with this chapter, and we have now cracked the colour codes pike actually see. ( Rods, cones, cornea
and tepetum lucidum, the retroreflector at the back of a pikes eye. This enables the fish to see in the dark. The cornea in front of a pike’s eye has a yellow tinge, it acts as a pair of sunglasses and filters out all blue light, hence
pike do not see blue in the spectrum.

6. The pike’s fish finding system, the neuromast organs is covered in detail.

7. Chapter on locating and catching a world record pike by Fred Buller. O.B.E. This was Fred’s last piece of writing on the species; it makes compulsive reading. The book also includes new pictures of the world record pike.
