Catching Muddy Water Pikes—on a Fly Rod! [VIDEO]

I’ve tried fly fishing for trout but no other species.

Fly fishing for northern pike in a muddy river never even crossed my mind.

This video takes you on a slow motion pike fly fishing trip.

The video, with its slow-motion artistry, makes catching pike on fly gear look easy.

Pike aren’t easy to catch on a fly rod. You need big tackle—a big rod and a big fly. A steel leader is also required to prevent bite offs.

Then, you need to practice to be able to cast the big flies.

Finally, you need to know where the pike are hanging out.

This guy makes it look like a breeze! What a cool video.
