I've been using Rio FlouroFlex in 60lb lately. I've had a pike trash through 40lb flouro before - don't like leaving big flies in pike mouths, or losing me precious flies! ;-) I've also got Rio hard mono 80lb.

I've played around w/ different knotable wire and premade leaders w/ clips. the all work well, but I like flouro for the stealthy bit. I shoudl probably use wire, but until I loose another big pike, I'm sticking to fluoro and hard mono.

I've using a Batson RX8 9' 9wt w/ Rio Outbound intermediate line. really slings the flies out there when blind casting, whcih is most of what I do. mpp

Good to hear I'm not alone out there with the stealth teory...

Thanks  :cool:

Damn nice picture Rasmus!

I particularly like the way I can see your "stealthy" 40lb tippet! :p

So the difference is that Mono/Floro are seen as a thick white line in front of the fly, and the wire is seen as a brown/black one?

Oh, and the other difference is that one day your 40lb/60lb leader will get bitten through, and wire won't!

Mpukas, 80lb Rio Hard Mono! That stuff is thicker than rope! :)

You can see the nylon leader from the fly and going left in the picture isn't very visible at all in water, out of water it looks like a rope. Depending of the angle of the light and depending of the type of nylon (shiny surface or not) it is more or less visible, mainly less visible. That's one of reasons why some live- or deadbait anglers use fluorocarbon when the fishing is tough in clear water to get the big fish.

Nylon works for me, and it's not often the fly and fish is gone. Most times it's at the take on places with fast attacs from smaller fish. The really big ones often come closer slowly and just sucks in the fly, the smaller ones can attac like crazy. Statisticly it happens 1 (small fish lost in the take without any setting of the hook) out of around 30 fish of different size for me. Loosing fish while fighting them is very rare, i think it has only happened 5-8 times over the years.

I'm not sure it's only the clear nylon, there might be more to it to make it work. Fighting the fish... fishing the fly... the right place... the right time...

I'm not trying to convince you or others, I do not recommend using nylon for pike.

(Picture: not a big one, 96 cm. and as far as I remember 7,5 kilo)

Awesome pike Rasmus, I'm really jealous of your piking over there. One day I plan to make it over there to have a go myself.
