How to fly fish for big pike

Fly fishing for pike is the fastest growing tactic in the UK, with interest rocketing by more than 100 per cent in the last season.

Tackle shop figures show a huge boom in this fishing style as more and more companies develop gear specifically designed for the species.

The popularity is driven by the sheer size of pike that live in trout waters and the exhilaration of catching predators on such a direct and 'tactile' method.
