Here are some pike patterns i have been working on and a real snap to tie! All synthetic materials so will shed water fast on your back cast. This is kinda similar to one of the 1st pike patterns I ever tied. These take markers very well and can be tied in various lengths. The tail is Santa material that I picked up from the craft store and i am really liking the the stuff! Hook is a 6/0 gamugatsu saltwater. I need to get some footage and some pike fishing in before there is 2ft of snow on the ground....tight lines!
