Is the pike premiere getting closer?

Well of course it is.
But is it in the forseeable future?

I think so.
This weekend i'm heading south for a meeting and i'm hoping to be able to squeeze some pike fishing in to these days.
Not very likely but i just might.

In news from my own river the ice is starting to creak and crack and there's been some waterflow on it, weighting it down and hopefully soon enough it'll release its grip.
Next week promises up to +9 degrees,hopefully that'll be the end of winter.
If so it'll be an exceptionally early spring and a very long pike spring season!

I've been tying some more, ran out of Big Fly Fiber and i really want some more of it, it's a great material and the flies look awesome.

Pike flies with Niklaus Bauer.

Yesterday was a fun evening (though a bit short)
Pike flyfisher profile Niklaus Bauer visited our local flytying club and showed a couple of patterns.
Nothing out of the ordinary but some neat tricks for handling materials.

What i liked most was that he gave away his pike fly to a young guy aspiring to start with pike on the fly.

I got some inspiration,got to talk some matierials and have a look at all those fancy ones i want but can't afford.
Nice to see what's out there anyways.
