I have to say that I am a complete novice re Pike. I can only bring my own instincts to predation and that instinct borne from all fishing of inducing that take through movement, smell, color, sound. I am admittedly intrigued by this long, sleek killer and would love to fish for them someday. Not sure it will happen, but the enviorns closest to me in the Northern U.S. and Canada..seem so appealing and the big fly, shallower waters and observed take…wow! I also enjoy reading about other parts of the world where these fish are taken. I love steelhead, salmon, all trout, but these critters could become addictive. I am sure those that chase bass, walleye, carp etc. feel the same. But, one has to acknowledge true predators…pike fit that bill. I want to learn more and there are some beautiful photographs on the attached link and interesting sites from Graham’s site….enjoy, I did.
