I finally got my digital camera working! Here's a fly that I think will do wonders on BIG pike:

The Cobra Meatball
Hook: 4/0
Head: black wool spun, and clipped to shape
Collar: Blak and red marabou
Tail: Fuzzy fiber with a little red krystal flash
Eye: Large stick on eyes, or in this case reflective wrapping paper glued on.

Love the name!!! :)

If you haven't already done so, you might also want to try some brighter color combinaitons so you'll be ready when conditions require them.

Let us know how you do with this one; I'm quite curious myself.

Great looking fly!
On a 4/0 hook, it will definitely get very heavy to cast and also sink deeper for those lunkers?
Keep us posted when you get trials & results...

Well I'll let you people know later in june... big Minnesota trip. I've never caught any bigger than 7lbs up there, so I'll have to tie some in the 2/0 category, but i have caught 5lb smallmouth too. Ill have to get the ol' digital camera out again to show off some sweet looking crayfish.
