I’ve now spent more days on the pike fly fishing waters this season than any previous season, ever. And after 8 months since I started this season I still haven’t got a nice sized fish to show for it. It’s a bit frustrating actually. And it’s not for lacking being in contact with bigger fish, especially this past spring I was in contact with several fish over the meter mark but didn’t land any of them.
Oh well, there are still a short span left of this season, and as long as there are no ice I will keep fishing. Hoping these two new articulated flies will do the trick! I was out for three hours with a friend this past weekend, in his boat on his waters so to speak. He’s not a fly fisherman (no one’s perfect) which is something I like because it is very interesting to learn from other fishing styles too. He had way more fish contacts with me this time and all of those was on a copper colored Buster jerk lure. So even if it looks more gold than bronze the second fly below is my take on imitating that lure of his.
