Ahhh, pickerel, my favorite FW game fish. That's a cool pattern; I've found that most SW baitfish patterns can be "down-sized" to catch pickerel and other pike family members. Then again, at the size that some of the Northerns and muskies get up to, down-sizing isn't always required.

I think I've taken more pickerel on red/white, yellow perch, and chartreuse over white/pearl than any other color patterns.

Nice fly,

From my experiences, pickeral LOVE that hot orange color more than any other gamefish. The louder the better.
