    Playing around at the vise today trying to come up with a big articulated streamer with lots of profile and flash for aggressive steelhead and maybe even the stray king.

    This is what I came up with




    Consists of purple rabbit zonker strips, pink and orange marabou, pink estaz, and some silver krystal flash

    Default meat hook...

    my hat is always off to you classic tyers...such an art form for sure...and it is one of the foundation stones of our pursuit as anglers...

    I do make my own rods...especially from bamboo...my flies are strictly for fishing...but do qualify as big streamers...I am working on tying some of the classic patterns...but it is a work in progress...

    here are a few tie's from homegrown materials(from harvests or my ranch)

    gadwall,wild turkey,elk & moose mane, even some buffalo tail...





    and w/ a little flash...some guinea hen too from my friends yard bird...and a woodie too...









    all work well for big trout and other species as well...when they are wet and moving they look a bit different...I am tying up some articulated ones too...

    Hey Guyes, my first post on the board, and love all the pictures you post of you flies, nice inspiration to us new guys.

    I haven't fly fished mutch, when i was 12 years old i got a "beginners #7 fly rod setup" and the family went to a fishing camp where there were some fly theme weekend where people could learn to cast, an tie flies, i managed to catch some small brown trout, with my truly poor casting technique. After that i have't fly fished sins, now that i'm 24, and love pike fishing in Denmark, i found a great fishing buddy, who fly fished for over 20 years. We started practice in the garden, and it kept getting better and better. So i decsidet to go all in on the fly fishing for pike, and im currently waiting for my #10 rod.

    But while i'm waiting i started tying some BIG flies. This is some of the first bigger pike flies iv'e made, getting some help and ideas from YouTube.

    Hope you like them

    Had to untie some of them halfway and start over as they didnt looked like i wanted them to.

    Kind regards Bjarke.
    Tight lines.


    First of a longer flash fly than I made before, as I saw my buddys in the water and the long tail looked amazing.

    Black fly with epoxy head and eyes glued on.

    Those are some great patterns you have there, all of which would surely have a place in my esox boxes.

    One material I didn't see utilized in any of your patterns is bucktail. Other than flashabou, my number one material in my musky and pike flies is bucktail. If you can get your hands on some quality bucktail (which means having to go to the fly shops and taking each one out of the bag), you will like what you can do with it. It will also open up a broad range of new flies for you to tie. It's movement on big flies is nearly unbeatable, and is lightweight and easy to cast.

    Check out this two part video for a good example of what I'm talking about.

    Thanks, and your right some proper bucktail is on top of the list, of materials i need to get.

    I have some classic bucktail inline spinners for spin fishing, and the movement of the bucktail in the water is amazing.

    Might not be huge, but those sculpin helmets weigh a metric ton! I like the ties.

    Thank you! You are right, they do weigh a ton. They scoot nicely across the bottom though and with the hook up they rarely get snagged.
