so just to get the karma right i whipped out a quick deciver you can never go wrong or have enough decivers great for fresh water predators as well as salt water preds
so once karma was restored i had some work to do before i got down to the fun and games of trying out some superb new raptor material from the chaps at piketrek
so having decided that i was building a big fly i used a 7 inch section of raptor fibre fish belly around this I've placed a thick section of raptor fibre road cone orange this is fast becoming a favorite colour for a core as the picture on pike treks site really doesn't do it justice its a really glowing orange , so I've then around the core hollow tied some white synthetic fibre again a great material to tie with around the orange and then added 3 thin sections of chartreuse raptor the length of the back of the fly one on the back and 2 on the sides.
I've also tied in a thick long back length section of olive ep sparkle fibres i then added some of piketreks mossy green natural colour synthetic fibre a thin long Peace hollow tied once I've done this i take my thumb and forefinger and blend a little while on the hook , i then simply added a couple of 9 mm eyes and a thin layer of epoxy and i think its turned out really well
so that's that for today ill be on the skype to redneck pikepicker capsey later so no doubt some fresh ideas will happen so have a great weekend and hope you land some monster pike and remember your cameras
