Pike Bunny

Bunny leeches, perfect for pike fly fishing!

This well used yellow bunny leech may look nothing special, however work it through the water and it comes alive! Easy to cast, they are our go to fly at the moment, producing lots of fine pike.

Returning a nice fly caught pike.

Predator Fly Fishing is Hot

Posted on October 14th, 2011

With temperatures cooling, our predator fly fishing for trout, pike & perch is heating up!

3.5lb perch on the fly!

Numbers of pike to double figures and huge perch are being landed currently.  A number of clients are also experiencing the frustration of loosing pike due to poor hook set. Please remember you have to strike hard to ensure a firm hook hold in the seriously hard, toothy jaws of a pike. We recommend using a strip strike. Tom and I find we have no problem hooking and landing pike this way.

First Pike on Fly

Posted on April 19th, 2010

Joe Myatt joined us for a fly fishing lesson last week. Having significantly improved his fly fishing skills, we noted high levels of activity from some well mended pike. These were feeding heavily in weedy margins, while trout were not playing ball. A quick tackle swap brought instant success!
