These streamers for pike are articulated, so the move very nice. The length is between 17-20 cm. Even if the look quite bulky, they are easy to cast, because the materials are tied in sparsely . Really flies that everyone can cast.
I wanted to tie a new streamer pattern and it should have a great movement in the water. So I united 3 importend characteristics:
- movement because of the articulation
- movement because of the material
- movement because of the weight
So I tied an articulated fly with ostrich and zonker strips and put on a Fish Skull Baitfish Head. These aluminum heads are weighing about 0,45 g. Enough weight to let the OZO Streamer jig, light enough to cast it easily.
The ostrich and the zonker stripes are moving fantastic. Every little piece of the fly is moving and jigging like it is something real.
There are two Gamakatsu F 314 #6 hooks in this fly. The front hook is normal, the tail hook is pointing upwards. If you don’t like to fish tandem hooks, or it is not allowed in the water you fish…no problem! Just cut off the first hook with a pair of pincers and your are ready to go.
