Jo Stephenson, who reached the semifinals of the BBC's "The Big Fish" has created a selection of great looking predator flies. Here she presents four pike flies and carefully shows you all the techniques and materials needed so that you too can tie them.
This has been my most successful pike fly over the past couple of seasons. Although it looks rather bulky, because it is created using backtying, it is light and easy to cast. The predominently pink colours make it irresistible.
