This fly uses Capt. Ray's technique for tying in Angel fact, it's an Angel Hair baitfish tied for pike.

Hook: 3/0
Thread: Mono
Tail support: Short, sparse white Super Hair
Overwing/Underwing: Red and white Angel Hair, tied in to represent the classic Daredevle red and white spoon
Eyes: Large prismatic
Head: A dab of epoxy encompassing the eyes and whip finish

Overall fly length is about 6 inches.

I have reservations about how long these will last with pike, but I just had to try. I like how the Angel Hair baitfish flies fish in the salt, so I have to give them a fair shot in the sweetwater. :p

Pete, you can get a great primer on tying these flies by visiting Capt. Ray's website. He's a long time sponsor and friend of Check it out at, or click on one of his banner ads here at the Forum.

Have fun, and get after those pike soon. :)
