GATSO FRY FLY PERCH STRIPE - PIKE FLY - 1/0


GATSO FRY FLY PERCH STRIPE

3" LONG 1/0 HOOK

More details


£2.50


When pike are feeding heavily on fry, they do so to the exclusion of all other bigger sizes of preyfish. It makes perfect sense to use a fly that is no bigger than the natural food-forms that they are feeding on, otherwise a biteless day is on the cards.

Gatso flies are perfect for representing fry fish. They are tied using Spectrum Fibre Mixes for the tails and Gatso Fibre for the front "hackle", and are colour-coded for extra realism.

You can cast them into an area where pike are fry-bashing and just leave them to sink, which they do VERY slowly due to the Gatso Fibre front hackle, and the Spectrum Fibre tail wiggles enticingly as it falls. This mimics a bust-up fry as it dies and sinks wriggling to the bottom...........GULP!

Takes are normally quite vicious compared to the sometimes gentle takes that we experience usually, as the pike are competing with each other for food when they are feeding like this.

Tied on a very strong 1/0 hook for maximum holding power, as fry-feeding can take place in very snaggy areas where hit-and-hold tactics are necessary, and a tiny hook would be inadequate.

This new Perch Stripe pattern features a red tail for that added bit of attraction and realism. Good for catching big perch with! Try jigging it slowly along the bottom under bridges, jetties and other underwater structure that provides shade, ideal big perch territory.
