Pike/Musky

Pike/Musky

Some of the meanest fish in freshwater.

In Europe, Canada, and the northern Midwest, pike and musky have long been the most revered gamefish you can catch. More recently, fly fishing for pike and musky is beginning to catch fire. And for good reason. These razor-mouthed torpedoes are elusive, explosive, and just awesome. As ambush predators, they’re known for appearing when you least expect them, but with some practice, anyone can consistently find pike and musky with a fly rod.

To help you meet the casting and fish-fighting challenges inherent to pike fly fishing, we’ve hand-chosen the following equipment.
