Fly Fishing for Northern Pike

July 7, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Picture this. You’ve just made a 70 foot cast into a flat peppered with last year’s pencil reeds. The water is only two feet deep and you are watching your big feathered streamer dart in one -foot pulls under the surface as you strip it in. Suddenly there is a huge boil and the streamer disappears.” Larry Myhre describes a post-ice-out trip to Ontario’s North Caribou Lake, detailing the gear required to catch 20-plus-pound northern pike.
