tied by navigator36
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Pike,
Recommended Region: Central Canada,
1/0 or 2/0 streamer hook
Big fly thread or kevlar
Wire for body
1/4 bead head
Many different color variations.
Tying Instructions: Slip the bead on the hook. On a 2/0, it may take
some force and may bend the barb slightly.
Tie on the marabou tail...optional.
Tie on the wire and wrap almost up to the bead head.
Then tie on a large marabou wing or combo color wing at the base of the bead. Tie it down tight.
Cement it well and that's it. Very simple.
Presentation Tips: This is another heavier fly from my pike patterns.
I use a 9 or ten weight for this one as it's as close to a jig as you can get.
I like using this one for sight fishing. Using a floating
line you simply cast it out into some cabbage beds and watch it descend. Then bring it forward with a sharp pull again and watch it descend. You basically jig it through the weeds as it comes back to you.
The pike go nuts for it's rising and falling action.
