Piker Blonde (swap entry)

Hook: Dai Riki #810, size 3/0
Thread: Yellow, 3/0
Tail: Yellow bucktail
Tail flash: Pearl flashabou (saltwater size)
Body flash: Flat gold tinsel
Wing: Yellow bucktail
Flanks: Chartruese grizzly saddle hackles
Throat: Red bucktail
Eyes: Red 3D stick on
Head: 5 minute epoxy, followed by Hard as Nails

I wanted to try something a bit different for the pike. About a year ago I put the grizzly blonde pattern into the striper archive, but always had it in the back of my mind that it would make a good freshwater pattern as well.

These flies are sparser than what I normally tie for pike, and I have never fished them in such an application. I believe that the color, flash, and size are right, but ultimately the fish will be the judges.

Please let me know how you all do with this pattern. I'll be trying it here, but would like to know how it works elsewhere.
