Bread, jack attacks and a rudd in a tree

Jack attack Out for a few hours this morning in gathering heat, re-learning how to fish with bread flake for roach and rudd. I was pottering along quite happily, missing more than I hooked, when suddenly a jack loomed from a weedbed beneath my feet and had a go at a roach I was bringing to hand. There was a big, green-marbled swirl in the clear water.... The jack missed, fortunately. Next cast I hooked a little rudd - and this time the jack made no mistake. The Lucky bent over and I could see the jack clearly, with the unfortunate rudd protruding from its jaws. The pike wasn't anywhere near hooked, but nor would it let go of its prey. I played both fish for a minute or so and had begun to believe I might land them both - was reaching down for the net - when... The jack let go. The hapless rudd flew up into a tree, from whence I luckily retrieved it, though I can't say that by this time it was anything other than a terminally poorly rudd.
