Nice job Adam. I like the mini hair clip trick.

Tied a bit smaller (or not) that should work for steelhead, king and coho salmon in rivers. Also looks like a good ling cod pattern. Pink wouldn't be my first choice for lings, but not sure they'd care.

Oh yeah, what hook is that tied on?

IMG_20170514_150842.JPG Thankyou C&CRods & SilverFly & everyone else that liked it! This is the hook i used, #6/0 big Mama from Vision, made by Partridge & same as the Universal Predator X but red! IMG_20170514_150914.JPG IMG_20170514_150951.JPG Other parts i used, Bauer power rattle & Pro soft head! Thread is Veevus 150d GSP, dosen't break! Important tip, comb the bigfly fibre first & use zap a gap in the build! IMG_20170514_151110.JPG Pink & pearl is a good colour combo over here & most of my pike over 1metre have been caught on those colours, but after getting the first one it was the only colour i used for a couple of years!:) Really nice fly C&CRods! Take it out & catch a monster! IMG_20160527_105640.JPG But be carefull! IMG_20170406_172617.JPG They bite!:)

Thanks Adam, will definitely tie that up. The 150 GSP flares bucktail pretty good, gives enough bulk without having to reverse tie. Pretty much only reverse tie on the front hook anymore and only if I want to push more water. I bought some jeweler's pliers and started using Bill Sherer's method of DIY shanks .

That is awesome man!! Love the pike and blood pics. That is what it is all about. What weight rod do you use mostly. I always used 8 wts even on the monsters up the Yukon.

Just remember to only use the bucktail from the base, not the tip, it flares the most!

Thanks! Always used 9wt's & even a 11wt, but it's a bit much! Last year i got a Scott Meridian 8'4" 10wt, truly a wonderful rod & seems closer to MF then Fast! It's my favorite pike rod now!

Yep! For a long time i wanted a 10wt for pike, had to be closer to 8' then 9', had to be a Saltwater rod cos' i fish in the sea & had to be medium action, hear a lot of people say the Meridian is closer to MF even though Scott rates it as Fast, i'm very happy with it! Don't know why people always think a rod for pike flies has to be fast action!
