The Red Witch
This is a great pike fly for early season fish that are not interested in the really big stuff yet. It is very light to cast and has a ton of movement in the water. As well it is a very cheap pike fly because it does not need any hackle. Fish this fly deep or shallow and it is sure to turn some heads when it swimming through the water.
