Pike Diver (pike swap entry)
Here's my entry for the pike fly swap. I made up the recipe based on a fly that I saw in a catalog. These are about 7" long but can be easily shortened if desired. I haven't field-tested this pattern yet, but tank tests revealed that the fly may tend to roll over when retrieved. It may be possible to "tune" the fly by shaving small amounts off the flared portion of the head.
Hook: 3/0 Bass Bug Hook (Orvis #8810)
Thread: 3/0 Monocord
Tail & Wing: Fishair and Krystal Flash or Fluorofibre.
Head: Foam diver head
Eyes: 7.5 mm plastic eyes with stems on the back (Animal Eyes)
Other: Soft Body, 5-min epoxy, black Sharpie
Detailed instructions to follow.
