Re: Pickerel Flies
They've got pickerel down there?
You're right that they are pretty much little pike. They like reeds and other vegetation for cover, particularly if it's in the shadow of a bankside tree on a sunny day. I think they are considered ambush predators, but in my limited experience they seem to cruise their territory more than some others. Never fished for them on the fly, only hardware, but any streamer, leech, bugger or crayfish imitation could do the trick.
Bust 'em up Dean!
