How To Tie The Mermaid Man Articulated Kreelex Pike Fly: Fly Tying Instructional Video

The Mermaid Man Articulated Kreelex Pike Fly

This fly is big, mean and bright. This fly will turn heads and make pike or musky very angry. Expect an aggressive take and a major fight when you hook a fish with this fly. It is a light fly that is easy to cast to the furthest targets. It swims through the water with an incredible amount of movement and a very natural look to it. Strip it fast or strip it slow, it doesn’t matter. It will get the job done.
