BIG EAT ESSENTIALS

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A NEW CHALLENGE AND COOPERATIVE FISH, GIVE FLY FISHING FOR NORTHERN PIKE A TRY.

Gone are the days when fly fishing was relegated to delicate trout, small flies and flimsy rods. Modern fly gear has made it possible to chase a myriad of both freshwater and saltwater species. Whether sharks, tarpon, giant trevally, or muskie is the target, the list of sport fish that can be caught on a fly includes almost anything that swims.

Another species that can be added to the list of pursuable fish is the northern pike. Known for its predatory instincts, penchant for large flies and savage eats, this toothy fish can be found across North America, Europe and Russia. From Saskatchewan to Sweden, pike have created a global sensation for those fly fishers looking for vicious action on the fly.

With a face only a mother could love, pike resemble a mutant alligator—part gator, part fish. A wide, flat head and yellow eyes give them an intimidating appearance, while strong jaws, big teeth and a lean body allow pike to be the ultimate predator. These fish are known for lying in wait and granting a death wish to a host of unsuspecting prey. A pike’s menu may consist of frogs, snakes, ducks, mice, muskrats and fish, such as perch, walleye, bluegill and even other pike.
