Pike fly – tying instructions
To tie the following fly I used:
– A piece of tube large size with liner tube (about 5-6 cm length)
– Black thread size 6/0
– Green Rabbit Zonker strip about 10 – 12 cm long for the tail and body
– Orange Marabou feather and Red Ostrich feather for the hackle/head
– Eumer Red Monster Conehead
To fix it properly, I added drops of superglue on tying points.
I am pretty happy with the result even if the rabbit strip does not offer the same quality as Finn Raccoon, I am pretty hurry to test it.
If by chance you know a good retailer for Finn Raccoon Zonker strip on the internet, I am interested as I have not found any yet.
