Pike Rooster – prototype

2012/12/30 Pike Rooster – prototype

As I was preparing things for upcoming pike fishing, I came across a choice between how big and how light I should tie my fly. It’s got to be big enough to impress pikes to provoke strikes, but it’s got to be light enough so that I can cast at ease.

Martyn White, a member of this club, once showed me his new pattern that forms a bulky fly with fur spreading out. That gave me a hint what if I do the same using Enrico Puglisi fiber?

So I did. The result is you can tie a fly 20cm long. Very fluffy and it worked quite well attracting big pike in lake.
