This week we are going to be tying Pike flies! It’s almost time to start prowling the Flathead looking for Pike. Pike fishing is a great time and usually ends with a great fish fry at the end of the day. I am a big fan of Clousers for pike. I will be tying my Clouser Pike fly and the classic “Rabbit Pike Fly” These are very simple patterns and area very effective. Tying Night starts at 6:00 and goes till the beer is gone! Or we run out of stories.
Here is a short list of materials you will need to think about:
1-Size 2-3/0 Hooks
2-Thread – 3/0
4-Body Material – Rabbit Strips, Craft Fur or Bucktail
5-Flash – Flashabou or Crystal Flash
Here is a quick warm up video for you. The music is a little much but the fish tank at the end is cool.
