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

Head/beak: Thread

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.

Looks great!
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!
