Pike/Muskie Flies

Recommended Posts

Since bass season isn't open up here yet and I just bought a new 9wt. I have had a hankering to get out and fly fish. Just hoping you could share your favorite pike/muskie flies!

 

I have been throwing mainly: deceivers, half & half's, and clousers

 

I want to tie and try out some MOAL's but I don't have cross-cut rabbit or two vises (I understand that is the easy way)! :unsure:

 

What else should I give a shot?

Big bunny leeches in single or two tone colors, and Dahlberg divers are the only other thing I would think about. Otherwise I think you've got it covered.

This is my "go to' pike fly.

 

Another great fly is a "Bunker Fly" tied with a synthetic material. I tie it in a number of colors... Chart/White; Black/Yellow; Red/White

 

Here's a link to one I posted

Three components I try to include in every pike fly... some red to look like blood or gills, a lateral line and eyes. Those are big triggers for pike.
