Spent Friday tying up some flies for pike, after six hours of non stop double haul casting the 10wt on the river Saturday I came home with a box full of chewed up pike flies and wire tippets bent into what resembles a slinky, so I guess you could say Saturday's fishing was a pretty good day ;)

It was cold, windy, and a bit of rain but that all makes for perfect fall pike weather. All in all I'd say around twenty different pike followed, chased, slashed at or ate my flies, many of them exploding on the fly right at my feet which always makes for an exciting take on the fly. Sizes ran from as small as 20" on up to about 33" but they were all active and wanted to kill the streamer. Best thing about it, there was not another person in sight, it was just me the river and some aggressive fall fish, gotta love the river at this time of the year!

You'll be doing things you don't like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don't like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life, doing what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way." - Alan Watts
