Video Blog #2
If you're interested in fly fishing for Pike, here's the set up I use.
Fishing in no more than 10ft of water, I use a nine weight rod with 9 weight floating line and matching reel. I start my leader with 2ft of 30lb mono from the fly line followed by 2ft of 20lb mono. Attached to that I use Rio's "Toothy Critter" nylon coated wire leader. Flies of choice are cone head popsicle leeches (all assorted colors but white has worked best for me), 1/2 & 1/2's and clouser minnows. Best presentation for me has been a strip, strip, pause. The Pike usually take it on the pause. Other important equipment is:
Large landing net or cradle
Long forceps or needle nose pliers
Still looking for comments on the whole video blog thing. Keep it or kick it to the curb?
