In many parts of Central Europe, pike fly fishing has often been underestimated and under-utilised in the past. Fortunately, things have changed in recent years, as our friend Esox Lucius is very curious about the (big) streamers and reacts very well to these baits. Recently many interesting pike flies have been developed. In short, our new pike tube-streamers up to 25 cm long will be available, which should be used with an intermediate sinking fly line.
Catching a pike with a fly rod is not very difficult; the basics of "normal" fly fishing are enough. The streamer recovery must be done by banging and must always be concentrated, as the bite could happen at any time. Usually the attack is unforgettablely violent.
In pike fly fishing with the streamer, the hook will stick very few times directly on the lips, as these fish often attack with great vehemence, swallowing the bait entirely. Therefore, a steel leaders is a must. In general, we advise you to adapt the equipment to the possible prey.
Light pike streamers have the advantage of being easily cast over long distances. In order to be able to reach a certain depth anyway, it is advisable to use an intermediate sinking fly line.
