Author of Pike on the Fly, Carp on the Fly, and most recently, Mastering Pike on the Fly, Barry Reynolds knows a thing or two about tying big flies for big fish. Barry's pike fly is a classic pattern for targeting large esocids. These patterns were tied larger than life, 10 to 12 inches long, for the pursuit of maashkinoozhe, or ugly pike. Better known as Esox masquinongy, the muskellunge.

  1. Stop it! Just stop it! you crazy bastard. Enough is enough!

  2. So pretty in pink. Where do you find the time to tie these beautiful flies you've been doing?!

  3. @Dave: I reached in to the vault and dig out these patterns. They had been suffering a cruel and agonizing death suffocating in a polyethylene coffin. Luckily they got some fresh air to breathe.

  4. Sweet looking Pike flies - I keep Barry Reynolds book next to the toilet for a bit of inspiration ;-)

    Relearn something every time I read it!

  5. Are you going to get a chance to do some damage with those?
