Today we where on an outing with the fly**** scouting our

local waters for pike.

My buddy got a nice on early in the morning but that pike managed to threw the hook.

Closeby I hooked a nice pike but just like my buddy the hook came out after a while.

Not far from where I had hooked the pike another one stalked my fly but just kept his jaws shut.

The rest of the morning it stayed very quiet in the water.

Only a little perch saved me from being skunked today.

At least our caterer brightened up the day with meatball sandwiches served with peanut sauce.

That sandwich accompanied by the seasonal sweet dark bokbeer was the finishing touch of the day.

May I ask do you use Ad Swier Pike hooks? I have found them very bad keeping Pikes hooked. Being barbless is not problem with any other hooks but perhaps Swier Pike hooks just bend too much and does not penetrate enough?

I never use Ad Swier pike hooks :-)

Most of the time I fish with smaller size streamers.

For bigger patterns I would use regular saltwater hooks.

 

I know that some members of my local flyfishing club had problems

using the hook you mentioned and stay clear from it.
