Tying pike flies means digging out the bucktail.
I imagine you could tie pike flies without flat waxed nylon but I wouldn't recommend it.
Tying flies in fleece pants always seems like a good idea........
Half and Half's in red/white and chartreuse/white tied on a little smaller hook than usual for pike so the smallmouth can enjoy too.
I tell you it feels really good to be covered in schlappen right now!
