Ken at Pike Adventures asked me what's been working for me for pike flies so I threw up a few pics. These flies might seem a little fancy and fragile compared to most pike flies but I really enjoy tying them. I love tying with natural materials like bucktail, marabou and feathers and mixing all the different colors together...oh and they usually need to have lots of mixed flash although I noticed I cut back on flash on one of these. These guys really swim fished fast or slow. I try to balance them so they don't immediately dive nose down on the pause and instead sit there horizontal or slowly glide downward. For this reason I don't normally add eyes or epoxy towards the front and try to use lighter wire hooks. Yellow perch and other combos with orange and chartreuse have worked best for me. I can't wait to get out there and fish them.
