Wood carving is on the menu for this one. Well not really, but it is highly inspired of a famous glide bait from us called – Manta.
The cool and deadly action of glide baits are the movements, how they glide from side to side and the balance of them whey you stop, it just stays there, just waiting for your next pull. Deadly. Converted into a fly took it lot of try and failure but after a bunch I manage to get it how I wanted, the perfect gliding pike fly.
