Flyfishing for pike has never been more popular. Barry Ord Clarke presents us with a new generation of successful flies for pike developed by expert pike flyfishermen and fly-tyers. Herman Broers, Dougie Loughridge, Simon Graham, Ulf Hagstrom, Ad Swier and Steve Silverio have all contributed their well-proven patterns. Ten proven patterns - flies that have proved their worth - catching many big pike in British, European and North American waters. Four of the patterns include full step-by-step fly-tying instructions. This is the first in the new Proven Patterns series of step-by-step guides to flies that catch fish. Other current titles are "Flies for Sea-Trout - Rivers," and "Flies for Sea-Trout - Saltwater."
