Variations on a theme. Originated by Bill Murdich tied by many. These just plain catch fish. Tied for striped bass these have proved themselves as a top predator snack. this is good for us esox guys. top fly was tied by myself and the bottom 2 were from the guru of pike fly tying and fishing McFluffchucker. I have had good success with these baitfish patterns and find that they adapt well to tweaking and adding different materials. So have at it enjoy. My version was tied on a 2/0 mustad but have also tied some on tiemco 600 sp 3/0-5/0 hooks. Enjoy the flick.....Pikepicker.
