Some pics of my most recent outings for pike. Fish -em low and slow on an intermediate and hang on. Some decent smallies being caught a walleye and a fat ass yellow perch. Check out the damage on that freshly crushed Lefty's fly yummy!!!!! They are a hot fly for me right now so tie some up and fish -em hard!!!! I like mine in white and chartreuse , red and white and all white to just name a few. These are only 4-5inch pike flies. I should have known to go small or go home but hey live and learn. Enjoy we have high water right now with a break in the rain coming soon..so the weather man says...

Stuck my 1st 3 solid pike tonite. Nothing huge but I did have some sweet follows and a few fast swipes that were from the bigger pike. I guess one of the pike I missed pushed 8 or 9 lbs , by the boat with a horrendous swirl that scared the hell outta my son Kaiden. My fly of choice...Lefty's deceiver. Alot of tiers I know have their own take on this bad ass fly. Either way it catches fish unless it sits in your fly box.... Here is a step by step if your new to tying this great baitfish pattern. Tight Lines and with temps in the upper 70's this week things will be heatin up!!!

This year I was destined to catch the easter bunny..... Well my uncle Wally beat me to it . Not sure how uncle Wally managed to do it. Mr. bunny looks like he has been dippin in on the candy stash and chocalate covered carrots a little too much. I'll be hittin Uncle Wally up on the how to's later today and get the skinny on how he was able to nab Mr. Skinny bunny.....have a great easter everyone............

The temps here in VT have been up and down. Cold and warm cold and warm. I have been out 5 times so far with a few flollows to show for it. The follows have been by the bigger girls. Had a quick hook up last nite. I have been workin smaller bunny bugs in red and white and fishing a rio sinking intermediate line. The bunny flys are on 1/0 mustads and have a dumbell eye. This fly has taken more bigger pike for me than any other fly in my arsenal. Last year this fly put 2 back to back 10lb pike in my hands in 3ft of water. Not to toot my own horn but thats pretty good. You be the judge. Any way here is a step by step on tying my friend Barry's bunny bug and a pic of last years 3ft of water pike.....enjoy and tight lines!!!

Welcome aboard Mr. Socko. This is a joke of a fly that I have been going on about for months now. After seeing the results it don't look half bad and if ole esox eats it just once then mission accomplished. People always say tossin pike flies is like tossin a "wet sock" as people usually refer to that statement as "wet bunny rabbit". I say bullshit to that statement. If you have a rod thats able to throw those "wet socks like the pike saber does then no worries.... bring on Mr. Socko. This is a large brand new out of the package tube sock.....lord knows I wouldn't catch but probably kill everything in a 40 mile radius if I tied it on and fished one of my old white socks. Socko is tied on a 4/0 mustad tarpon hook and a few strands of flash. Not a new concept in design ...red and white has always been good to me. Some dummy eyes in the front and some solid whips and there you have it. plain and simple I love the esox family and i love fly fishing and tying for them. A nut job or way too obsessed...maybe but I don't give a rats ass. i missed a donkey of a pike the other day on my "Money in the Bank" red and white had it in her mouth and just didn't stick.....oh well it's what keeps me going you know. Tight lines and remember you saw it here and let me know what you think.....

Think your baitfish patterns are too big??? Think again my friends. Though I have taken many good sized pike on smaller flies there is the time when it's go big or go home. I like big flies myself. Check my brother Dave's jack pike pattern on his site via the side bar. It's a stone cold killer!!!!!!! Nuff said enjoy and tight lines!! http://
