Pike on the Fly

I had to smile when I saw Dominic Garnetts’ article in Fly Fishing & Fly Tying “Esox in the city”. I walk the river Exe in Exeter every day and have seen most fish from bream to trout and salmon, but I had never seen any pike, I also had the privilege of seeing two otters working the opposite bank to Dominic in the main picture one summers evening.
I shall be out there myself this winter instead of the canal, although I will still try the canal basin where access is possible as this contains some very big perch.
If you are thinking of taking up fly fishing for pike and perch this winter, here are a few suggestions for tackle and flies.

Loop Pike Booster Fly Rod – 8’8″ 9wt 3pc

Loop Pike Booster RodIf big toothy critters is the name of your game, the Loop Pike Booster is the rod for you. With a deep progressive action the Pike Booster Fly Rod delivers big flies as easy as nothing. A handle in a cork/rubber mix gives you a steady grip and we ensure that you will come out on top. Style and attitude included.
