Fishing for Northern Pike for the first time in Montana was an adventure in itself! That 6wt fly rod barely handled that one!
Fly fishing for Pike in Montana began with a birthday wish. My son Gavin wanted to go on a fishing trip for his birthday, so my wife and I told him we were going to purchase a guided trip on the Missouri River.
Just before it was time to book the trip, however, I asked Gavin if he would rather have a float trip on the river or do some other type of fishing trip that we don’t do very often.
He chose to experience fly fishing for Northern Pike! Those toothy devils that haunt the warm, dark waters of the north.
This is a video about our quest to capture a good sized Pike with a fly rod and a kayak.
