Re: Sage Flight, TFO TiCrX, or BVK...for pike

First, I STRONGLY recommend a MEDIUM-FAST rod, not a fast rod, especially if you're throwin big flies. And I wouldn't go lighter than a #9, just to handle the big flies. Plus, if you're doing...

Re: Go-to smallmouth flies

I agree with most of the patterns, but my "go-to" fly in both lakes and rivers, is a deerhair popper: r/w, r/yel, blk/yel, and natural. I tie it, usually on #2 - 4, somewhat like a diver, but with a...

Re: Orvis Clearwater rod 'okay' for Pike?

I've been flyfishing for pike & musky for 20+ years and have written the newest book on it (just to set my bona fides). The 8 wt. rod will work, but I strongly recommend against it. You need at least...

Re: Fly line help

I haven't noticed any real difference between bass & pike lines. In reality, the pike line has a slightly shorter (therefore heavier) head to turn over those really big patterns. I use either with...

Re: Pike streamers

Great looking flies, and I like the idea of using circle hooks. Iím surprised they donít hold up better. In that vein, DiverDan keeps knocking my Marabou streamers, and in fact implying that Iím a...

Re: Using Toothy Critter leader

Most recommend a figure-8 knot, which works fine. I use a 2-loop uni-knot. I find the key to minimize curls is to not fully cinch the knot before sliding it firm against the eye. The less you move...
