|These flies must be able to handle the sharp teeth of northern pike
and muskie and resemble the food that they eat in at least a
simi-realistic manner. The pike is one of the easiest to catch fish
there is. It is a voracious predator. You don't have to be as picky in
selecting a fly to match a natural bait as with many other species
but you do have to select a fly that will withstand the harsh
treatment of its teeth.
The Muskellunge is one of the largest and most elusive fish that
swims in freshwater. You not only need a fly that withstands the
bites without tearing up, you also need one that imitates a real, live
bait fairly accurately.
