Fly-tying & Tackle packages to get you started
designed by George.
Buy what you need at reasonable prices to catch Pike & Musky Currently, the flies I have found most productive and easiest to use are not available from any commercial catalogs. They still feature bunny strip streamers, which when waterlogged, are heavy to cast and tend to tangle around the hook bend. Artificial hair patterns work, but marabou streamers, in my experience, out fishes them all, and luckily, they are very easy to tie, even by inexperienced fly-tyers. My other favorite streamer is the Flashabou pattern, also easy to tie and cast, and very effective for both pike & musky. The 3rd necessary fly is the Deer Hair Diver, which, luckily, can be bought from most Fly Dealers.
I've put together a FLY-TYING PACKAGE, which will allow you to tie 40 - 50 marabou and Flashabou streamers. Detailed pattern recipes are in the book. It's got a portable vise and tool kit, so you can take it along on your next fishing trip, to repair chewed up streamers ... or create a custom fly on the spot.
Also, for those who want to get into this exciting sport but don't have the proper equipment, I've designed a basic package, including an excellent yet moderately price Tim Rajeff Echo Rod and large-arbor reel (inexpensive but with a good drag), loaded with the proper line line and backing, and a supply of proper leaders.
