Default Re: Northern Pike Fishing

I purchased a TFO Professional Series 8 wt rod and a Cabelas CSR Reel. This combination seemed to fit my budget, especially after purchasing the backing, quality fly line, wire tipped leaders (not sure how good they will work) and a couple of flies to take home and attempt to duplicate on my vice. I will be leaving for the Upper Pen of MI on the 28th of this month. I am really looking forward to this trip to catch some pike on a fly rod. Does anyone out there have any experience or advice on how I can be as productive as possible on the fly rod? Any casting techniques that are different than trout fishing? Any simple patterns that I can tie that pike love???? Has anyone used the prebuilt leaders with the wire tip/loop already built in?
