A dream has come true, says Eumer, who claim you can now fly fish for pike without the need for a fly rod.

“The Pike is a new fishing experience,” adds the Finnish company of its latest innovative spin tube. “Slow sinking and easy casting, it is irresistible to pike. The natural materials create the illusion of life and it is easy to fish The Pike slowly, a movement that is essential when the water is cold or the fish are passive. The Pike is also effective in shallower waters and can be used all year round.”

There are several techniques for using The Pike. When a fish takes the fly, the tube is designed to slide along the leader thus preventing damage to the fly. A steel wire is used with The Pike and any hook can be used with it, single, double or trebel. The steel wire, called Predator Wire 6/0, has been developed especially for The Pike.

Other advantages, say Eumer, are that you can cast The Pike with any spinning tackle; it works in all waters and seasons and with any retrieval speed or technique. Kits are also available to make your own tubes.
