I will once again try my best to catch a pike on my fly rod. I have tried in the past but after reading on this site it sounds like I need some more stuff. What do I look for in a good pair of jaw spreaders? Where is a good place to buy them? Also do you guys use long pliars or forceps or I have seen those pistol shaped hook removers in the catalogs. Which is better. Where should I get these. I have always used the leaders with the nylon at the end. I tie the nylon into a loop and stick it through the eye and over the fly and sinch it down. Should I be using a different leader? I'm sure I'll be asking more questions as it warms up. I just need an excuse to buy some gear right now.
