Nice pike on the fly.  It looks like a nice still night for casting.

Nice to see some more fly fishing on here. I can only take so much power bait :P
Beautiful evening and a nice fish!

I hope to get out again soon Axor and try some of your carp techniques.

Thanks,

It's really rewarding to catch a fish on something you've created.

Zander? Yet another introduction to something I had no idea of before getting on this site. From what I can look up, they can be picky and difficult to catch.

Thanks for the education Axor.

Thanks guys, that's only a baby, I have had bigger from the bank.
I'm sure the tactics are the same as your Walleye, they can be taken on rubber lures but it
is not common practice here, we use very light tackle size 8 semi barbless trebles to 15 strand light wire trace about 12" long
small float set over depth so not resistance is felt by the fish. The most common time to fish for them is at dusk as strong light effects there eyes, either that or in dark areas of water like overhanging trees. You can of course you can always ledger for them as well.

Ok, it was a while ago and I still had Hair :(
