I'm going to try to make it out pike fishing tomorrow.
The water temperature is still in the 30s, but the pike are in pre-spawn, and have been staging near their marsh spawning beds for a couple of weeks.
There's not a lot of fight in the fish at this temperature, but a fish is a fish.
I have a fly that I like that's similar to a seaducer, and I'll twist up a few big, hairy, bunny type flys tonight also.
The river is stained with run-off and full of flood flotsum, so a fly with profile, action, a maybe some noise might work best.
This is not the first time I've done this, but any tips on flys or technique will be welcome
The simpler the outfit, the more skill it takes to manage it, and the more pleasure one gets in his achievements.
