The successful construction of solid, dependable and above all, durable pike flies depends 100% on the quality of the materials used, FACT! Here at PIKETREK we believe whole-heartedly in the use of purely synthetic tying materials. We also think that using of bits of road-kill to make flies from is a hideously out-moded practice that belongs to a bygone age; if we can't catch a pike on a fly made from plastic then we can't really equate fishing for them with any sort of ethics in mind, especially from a conservation point of view. Natural materials also suffer from another disadvantage, that of holding lots of water once immersed, which makes them heavy and awkward if not impossible to cast if you like to fish with flies bigger than three inches long. We must remember that we are engaged in the sport of fly-fishing, which is meant to be enjoyable and not sheer hard work! Flies made from synthetic materials are far more likely to lead to an enjoyable day's fishing as they cast extremely well due to holding very little water, if any at all. Another benefit of synthetics is their strength and durability compared to natural furs, feathers and fibres, and flies made with the former always last longer and hold their shape better, therefore increasing effectiveness. We have divided our range of synthetic BODY FIBRE into two colour types, NATURAL shades and U.V. colours, which as their name suggests are very bright and extremely effective in the construction of attractor-type pike flies.
