tied by navigator36
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Pike,
Recommended Region: Central Canada,
Material List:
Size 1/0 or 2/0 streamer hook
Black 3/0 thread
Tail- Black 1/4 inch or 1/8 inch rabbit strip
Hackle- 2 black saddles and one orange in front
Head- Florescent orange egg yarn ( wrapped)
Eyes- Stick on prism eyes

Tying Instructions: Tie in the rabbit strip.
Cement base thread wrap.
Tie in black saddles and then the orange saddle hackle.
After hackles are done, tie in a length of egg yarn and wrap around base of hackle.
Wrap black thread to form a slightly larger head and tie off.
Stick on eyes.
To prevent the egg yarn from being shredded by the pike's teeth, cement it along with the black head.
Cement twice and you're done.
Presentation Tips: As you all know, pike are notorious for following a fly to the end of the retrieve and then slamming it.
The problem I have found with a black fly, is keeping a visual on it at the end of the retrieve.
That's why I came up with the fluorescent orange head.
Even working the fly from 30 feet away, you can still see it well in typical pike water.
