The profile should also help with the casting and the materials would not "drench" the fly.
I just got to get into some river pike fishing next season!

Keys style pike fly
Hook: Mustad 3366, size 2/0
Thread: Chartruese, 3/0
Inner tail: Chartruese bucktail
Tail flash: 6 strands each of peacock and copper krystal flash
Tail: Two pairs of hackle, one yellow and one grizzly chartruese, tied in with the dull sides to the outside; grizzly hackles furthest out
Eyes: 3D prismatic
Head finish: 5 minute epoxy followed by Hard as Nails
This fly is a tarpon style pattern tied in colors to match yellow perch, a favorite food item for the pike in these parts. Although I haven't fished it yet, I'm sure that the splayed feathers will move plenty of water and get some attention. I'll probably try this in red and white too.
