Kenmure Pike Fly

Update!! You can check addendum for this video at
See the full article about Ancient Pike Flies here
Please mind that I been following more 1897 painting of a Kenmure Pike than the book (1801 "Rural sports" Daniel, William Barker, 1753-1833 )
"The Pike Fly must be made upon a double hook, fastened to a good link of gimp and composed of very gaudy materials;
such as Pheasant’s Peacock’s or Mallards feathers; the brownest and softest part of Bear’s fur; the reddish part of that of a squirrel,
with some yellow mohair for the body. The head is formed of a little fur, some gold twist, and two black or blue beads for the eye;
the body must be framed rough, full and round; the wings (not parted) , but to stand upright on the back, and some smaller feathers
continued hence all down the back to the end of the tail, so when finished they may be left longer than the hook, and the whole
thing to be about the size of a Wren."

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
