well who knows bridges and man made structure are always a good target area for a few casts as they can produce not only pike but pretty good sized perch as well the picture above is one of my target spots the bridge opens up to a slightly deeper basin watercraft is everything on venues like this
the business end
this water has a large percentage of smaller pike and to be honest i don't mind what size they are as long as they take a fly although there is some very big fish to be had in there i never go with the thought that these are the fish I'm going to target . i know from experience that smaller flies in the 3 to 4 inch range will catch big 20lb plus fish i know this because I've done it .
so with this in mind and the fact that threes a lot of smaller fish and the chance of a perch or 2 im opting for clouser minnows bounced off the bottom along with some bunny type flies for movement all the flies with have some kind of rattle as well due to the fact is usually quite coloured but either way I'm quite looking forward to it
