Making plans to chase some pike. Haven't in a few years. Been tying a few of these.

That's awesome! I love making these big flies. What leader do you guys use? I use toothy critter with great success so far

I am looking forward to chasing some pike this year with the fly rod. I am new to colorado and have never lived near a fishable population of pike. If any one is looking for some one to chase pike with I would be up for it. Spent a few years chasing muskie with conventional gear and loved every minute of it but sadly I moved out of state.

Here is a Tiger I caught this morning.



As far as leaders go I use heavy fluro. This was 80lb. I rarely use steel. Until I start getting bit off I will keep going with it.

This Rod is a TFO TiCrX. Not my fav normally but I finally got it dialed in. I have Sage One 8 that I like a lot more but under the right line the TFO is pretty darn good. I fish this rod with a RIO Outbound 9. The over line on this rod is critical or it doesn't cast all that well. With the 9wt outbound line the big flies turn over really well.
