Pike tube flies have some obvious advantages over hook flies, two of them being the possibility to change hooks and the great balance in the water. You might already have seen a few pike tube fly tying videos by Niklaus Bauer on YouTube but this is an improved version with a Magic Head tied onto it for maximum profile and waterpushing qualities. It’s simply one hell of a great pike fly with a tendency to catch really big pike.
