Pike candy: big flies for big guys!

Alright, I've been wanting to get into flyfishing for Pike for a while. In the past I've used convential tackle with sluggo-fly hybrids, which worked well enough. However, you just can't beat using a fly rod. I'm in the process of tying up my flies as of now, as well as building an eight weight to handle the beasts. I can't wait! So, at any rate I needed to tie some larger flies as I've already started a sizable box of various deer hair/ bunny fur flies. In this case, deciever style flies took my fancy and I think they turned out well. I also threw in a picture of a large Mickey Finn. Enjoy! (Oh, and yes, I am fully aware the herl will take a beating rather quickly. There are other factors that will outweigh that though.) -Blake

From top to bottom: Traditional deceiver style, traditional style w/ the addition of oversize eyes, DNA flash and an epoxy head, and the ostrige herl/bunny version w/ oversize eyes and epoxy. These are all about 6 1/2 inches.



This is a large version of a classic; the Mickey Finn.
