Pike flies

I finally managed to get behind my vise again today (and it felt really good). I’m very satisfied with this ‘Lonesome Tom’ pattern. The way it moves in the water, and the fun I have in tying them, makes it my favourite pattern of the moment. I planned on doing a video tutorial on them (and I still intend to), but the video footage that I made on the action in the water turned out to be a bit disappointing, so it will be for later on.

These are all about 14 cm long, tied on an SS-1930 INOX, size 4/0.


Two in chartreuse and white, with some red under the chin


A yellow and white redhead


And a bleeding baitfish

Hi Stefaan, great flies; I'd be very interested in seeing a tutorial for them.

Thanks guys!

John, it’s always nice to get to know somebody who shares the same passion. I’ll post a tutorial soon, and if you have other questions, don’t hesitate to mail me.

A+ Xavier (ce nom est vraiment une mystère pour moi), le montage est sans rattle, mais c’est certainement possible.
