  • Baby Pike

    I am getting the pike itch, while I was setting in the fishing room and came up with this tie. I have had this EP Fiber for a long time and have only used it a few times to figure it out, but these are by far the best flies I have tied with this material. Hope I can coax some nice pike with these guys.

    How do you guys like the coloring, I don't do many ties like this and would like some feed back. Thanks.

    Larry

    I like it... I really like the one with red in the throat but I would put a stinger hook back about half way for the short strikes. Very nice.

        Stinger hook noted, tried to put one on after the fact and didn't work well. Thanks for the tip George.

          Then I start my mono, you don't wrap to far back, about a 1/4"... more is not necessary

            Then high tie the EP (or subsitute) alternating between the top and bottom of the shank

                High tie chartreuse once you feel like you have enough white on top

                Keep adding high ties alternating between the top and bottom of the shank until you are close to the eye and tie off.

                  Add color/markings, EYES! and the stinger hook (optional)

                  George, I like the stinger for the fact that it might result in more hook ups, but my fingers hate it, LOL

                        Very nice Larry, stinger looks awesome. Great job with colors and markers.

                          Very nice indeed! Following George's line of reasoning though, I'd be sure to make some 8-10" long and include the stinger about half way back. If you watch pike hitting larger prey, they often end up sideways in their mouth. And bigger pike respond faster (and harder!) to bigger offerings in my experience.

                              Sweet looking pike flies. The water wolves are going to have fun with it. Tight lines.
