If you could only use one pike fly in all situations, all year round – what pattern would you choose? In this video, Niklaus Bauer answers that question as he ties the, in his opinion, best allround pike fly there is. It’s relatively easy to tie, you can fish it with different tails and tie it in different colors and last but not least – it catches pike like crazy.
