Pike’s (No, Not Pike Street Market in Seattle….) Predators

I know nothing more about Pike fishing than they look evil and arouse the predatory, retaliatory urge in me. That said, far better, if you live in the lands of Pike, to be familiar with two notable experts in the field, who are amazing tiers and gifted chroniclers. Must be the latitude.

Simon Graham (Finland) at Pike Fly Fishing Articles and Ulf Hagstrom (Sweden) at 700 Teeth tie some amazing creations to provoke the slash. Check them out at their sites. If you are of a mind, they are both at FB also.

Last Chances, Last Gasps

A reminder, you too stoic or scattered ones dancing and skipping ahead of reality… be mindful of those you love. They won’t always be here.

October Caddis (Where Does Time Go?)

October Caddis~Switters B (Deschutes R.)Over a year ago, I was waving a two hander on the Deschutes R. in search of steelhead and incidentally noticing the October Caddis clinging to streamside trees in the afternoon breeze. I vowed to be there again for the steelhead and if time allowed or focus waned, a little trout fishing as well. Life has conspired to wipe out these plans this year. But, in honor of the large Caddis, yet another hairwing imitation…a low riding affair…less buoyant than and Elk Hair Caddis (EHC) but no less worthy.

Maybe next year, I will have not just planned to go but will have actually expended the time to tie up several dozen October Caddis patterns of various looks. I have previously posted here about October Caddis so query the search box re the habitat of the large trout morsel.
