I remember my first fly-fishing pike... I caught it in the Cuyahoga River, in Geauga county in Ohio.
The Pike measured 36.5 inches and weighed around 15 pounds.
I used a large mickey-finn (#8 hook) and an Orvis Spring Creek, 5 weight flyrod...
The pike was only 15 feet away when I seen it strike....
What a splash it made.
I use a thunder creek pattern too for pike.
I can't wait to catch my first "BIG" fish on my new one-weight fly-rod...
Best of luck
