pike flies

Recommended Posts

I like pike early when they are in shalow. And those are nice that you tied. I have only learned one thing about pike fishing and that is you want a fly that is light and won't soak up water. I don't like synthetics at all and try to stay away from them except in this case. Cactus chennile is my friend. Otherwise it's like casting a wet sock after an hour or so. But yours look great. I have a lot of luck in the N.E. with white.

 

PS. Nothing wrong with synthetics, I just have fun with the natural stuff.

In my limited pike experiance I found that bright, shiney, big, and sometimes noisy works well. Gawdy might be a good description. My experiance is limited to the low pressure area of the boundry waters so they may not be typical.

They spawn in the spring right after ice out. All you have to do is get their attention and then hold on. They are like a Jack Russell Terrier going after a squirel.
