Tie Dye Pike Fly

Been playing with some Icelandic Sheep hair. The stuff is very colorfull and has great movement in the water. I tested this guy out on the weekend and netted a little 4 pounder on the first cast. In half an hour casting from the shore I managed 3 with this guy. I really need to start bringing my camera when I go out.

Pike Dusters

These are not as pretty as the flies that PikeFFArticles makes but they are very effective.

I've tried everything for leaders when fishing pike on the fly. I’ve lost numerous flies with fluorocarbon but wire has never let me down. Now there’s wire and then there’s this stuff Cortland Toothy Critter, its wire you can tie with a regular knot. No special tools needed no hassles and you can repair it or tie it streamside or in the boat. The best part is that it has never broken on me, never left one of my favorite flies in the jaws of the snot rocket. It's a little pricey up here in Canada at $10 for a 10 foot piece but worth every cent when you don’t lose your favorite fly.

The Pike that started it all.

I've been catching pike my whole life but this is the one that started the obsession for them. He jumped, went sidways across the top of the water, dove and would not give up. He was a ballistic snot rocket from H..... Anyways this was years ago. Now I love to get them on the fly. This one swam to fight another day.

This may take a while

It's all about pike on the fly.

Content and pictures will start up soon.....
