Red and White Pike Fly

This fly tying video shows how to tie a big Red and White Pike Fly. Pike flies like this one are long and mean, and that is just what the fish need to take a high speed bite. This Pike Fly Pattern is simple to tie and works like a charm with the right retrieve. I suggest using a large gap hook when tying all pike flies. This pattern can be tied with many color combos and weighted if the fishing situation calls for it. Capt Matt guides in the Colorado Rockies for Trout and the Gulf of Mexico for Tarpon and Redfish.

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.
