Thread: Pike Streamer with very few material

  1. Default Pike Streamer with very few material

    Hey Guys,

    I am from Turkey. We don't have fly fishing here at all. All materials i could find are in the photo. I also have fly tying tools.

    I am going to a camp tonight and i want to catch Pike with my fly stuff. I need to make a streamer(minnow) to catch pike but i cannot find any fly patterns or videos that can be tied with the materials i have.

    I need some serious help.

    By the way. I don't have plastic eyes for minnow fly. All i have is metal beads. Can i use them instead? I can add black dots on them with nail polish.

    Ty very much .

    I'd love to help but dont see a picture

    Eyes aren't necessary by the way but they do help. You could always use a bit of nail polish, paint, or a marker to create your own eyes too

    Edit: now i see the picture

    Very simple...

    Take 4 of your white feathers and tie the in about half way down the hook shank. 2 on each side with the curve of the feather facing "in". Then take 2 of your orange feathers and tie them in by the stem and wrap them forward to the hook eye. Build a head with your thread and you have a pike fly

    Ty very very verrrrryyy much. But i have a confusion.

    Should i wrap the feathers around the hook or just tie them to shank?

    By the way i want to make a couple of flies. So , other suggestions are welcome too .

    The 4 white ones, you just tie to the shank facing backwards - those will the the tail of the fly. The orange ones, you wrap around the hook shank going forward

    You are basically making a version of this fly but using feathers instead of rabbit strips

    You can use all the colors that you have to make quite a few combinations

    You are my hero now . In that fly in the picture, you don't have either eyes or a head. Do you think i a head and eyes?

    Just build a small head with thread before you whip finish your flies. If you use white or a light colored thread, you can paint the eyes with nail polish.

    You could also try tying a couple with your beads/weights

    There you go!!!

    That will catch a fish!! The good thing about pike is that they are aggressive and if you can put something in front of their face, chances are they will eat it!

    Here is a link to a few more pike patterns that you should be able to tie with your supplies (they don't have to be exact-pike will go after just about anything that looks like it might be food):
