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.
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.
I tied a bunch of pike stuff last winter. did not have any luck the couple of times out. Kept getting distracted by trout. but I would love to join someone. Might help keep me from loosing faith and busting out the trout rod.
