Pike Fly Fishing

Fly fishing can be diverse and exciting by accepting the challenge of going for different fish. This booklet is about the challenge of one of the fiercest freshwater predators, Esox or the Pike which is found throughout Europe, North America and Canada.

Pike have evolved with one of the most comprehensive sets of senses for locating their prey. For starters, they are unique in having binocular vision and sighting groves on their long snouts. These sighting lines will help a fish know how fast it can accelerate to target its’ prey. This is one of the reasons why pike appear so fierce and aggressive ... it's because they can look you in the eyes with both their eyes simultaneously! So in clear water, these ambushing predators with rows of teeth and the ability to accelerate very rapidly are usually no match for their prey.
