Default Wapsi River in Iowa

Been hitting the rivers hard the last few days with limited success on smallies, but quite a few 5 pound pike. Been throwing a big orange streamer for them. The one on the bottom.

Just wondering. How long does one of those flies last after being hit repeatedly by pike?

Nice catch.

I have caught four pike on the one I am still using. Most of the takes are swallows, meaning the fly is completely in there mouth. Since it is not getting chomped during the fight I think it has lasted pretty well. I have had one fish waste a fly and caught a dozen on another. Really depends on the hook set. Top of the mouth seems to be the worst cause the teeth are half way down the fly and I think they grind their teeth the whole time you fight them.
