I'm new to the forum, not a new fly fisher though, I am happy to report, first pike as well as first pike on the fly. Everything came together today, a lot of reading (this thread, books), talking to fly shop owners, and YouTube(leader recipe). I have to say you guys were right, catching a toothy on a fly rod is like NOTHING else! Even this little pike just murdered a clouser. Murdered. I have to say fly fishing is already an unhealthy obsession that just got wayyyyyyy worse..I definitely want more...

Anyone looking to do a toothy float trip sometime soon in Western PA? I'm itching to get the drift boat in the water! I'm in the Burgh area, but anywhere within a couple hours drive is game.(Allegheny, lower Yough, French) Hit me up if anyone is interested.

Yeah Dude! I know what your saying, I can't stop thinking about it, I want to get back out real bad! I'm heading up to Erie next weekend to kayak the lagoons so I'm hoping to get into some toothies up there. As if fly fishing wasn't enough of an addiction already.

I seen a mid 30s pike attack a muskrat last fall the pike didnt kill it & it got away but that fish tried drowning it a couple times. It shook the #censor# outta it.

You would think the puncture holes from the pikes teeth would of killed it at the very least .

Oh I bet it dyed but it made it to its hole before the pike finished it off. Nature is a wonderful thing.

Im a river guy. I dont have much time on lakes or big bodys of water. Concentrate on the edges structure. Its spawn time. Remeber anytime to interact with a fish its a win. Good Luck.
