Pike Leaders – Courtesy of Neil Keep

 

Respected UK fly fishing expert, Neil Keep has kindly agreed to BCS sharing his blog comments and website information. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

As the waters are up and coloured at the moment, tying up some new pike leaders is the order of the day.

I have been using the Partridge Pike Tech leader wire which is manufactured from nylon coated 19 strand stainless steel wire. The wire is very flexible, kink resistant and easy to knot which makes things easy when it comes to attaching it to the end of a tapered leader at one end and to a snap link  it at the other.

For those of you that don’t fancy making your own leaders, Partridge produce Pike Tech ready tied leaders with a loop for a simple connection to the loop on the end of your fly line, perfect for a bit of winter piking!
