My first flytying video

Here it is, my first not so very professional fly tying video. Very much inspired by the guys at Fly fishing the ozarks and Brian Wise’s fly tying videos there, just not as good as theirs! Anyway, here’s The wild thing pike fly for you, hope you’ll enjoy it!

A little bit about the fly itself. At a first glance it looks like an obvious re-take on the classic Rac zonker pike and you can say it is but it did actually come to life as a try to upsizing one of my favourite large streamers for trout; the Red rocket from Micke Schmidt. Having met Mike a couple of times I gotta say that he’s one of the most creative and focused fly tyers I have had to privilige to watch tie. In the process of upsizing his pattern I went about and replaced every singel material from the original which probably makes this more of its own pattern than a variant of Mike’s orginial. But I still want to give credit to him for the inspiration!
