Baltic Pike flies was born about primarily to supply Baltic pike tours clients with a range of patterns while they were on one of our tours but due to the increased interest in the sport here in Finland, I have been supplying several fly shops for a few years now with a range of tried and tested patterns that can be fished at all depths on river, lakes and also the Baltic sea
Baltic pike flies brand is not just a logo, it’s a commitment to supply some of the best and more importantly, uniquely designed tied flies available on the market today. There isn’t one pattern which is massed produced in some dingy sweat shop, Instead they’re tied with the quality you’d expect from a professional pike fly-fisherman & guide.

Thank you so much Lena for all your hard work in getting this project completed. Your a star.
Anyway, once I was out of the restricted zone I waded out for an hour and chucked a few flies around. I cant tell you how many pike I spotted warming themselves up in the morning sun. There haven’t been many times in my long pike fly-fishing career where I can actually site fish for this species but this was one of them. In just an hour I caught 5 jacks and must have watched at least 20 or so follow my fly in close before spotting me and darting off again.
As I’ve mentioned before Its always a palaver setting up a camera onto its timer, then getting into position before the 10 second red flashing light goes out so I don’t usually bother. I try to unhook the fish without even having to take it out the water but just for remembrance of a truly stunning mornings hike I snapped this one. Oh and I didn’t see a single sole the whole morning!

Fly-fishing equipment manufacturers are coming around to the fact that there’s an ever expanding market for specific Pike/Muskie lines, shooting heads & specialized rods, and so more money is being used in the development of improving specific tackle to target these species. One only has to look at the new innovations of pike flies and their designs, to know that the sport is on the up. Pike on the fly is just as enjoyable as any other form of fly-fishing and will cost you a hell of a lot less to pursue than say Trout and Salmon fly-fishing & with the slow demise of these Hollywood blueliner fish due to numerous factors, ie: Norwegian fish farming or the over damming of major waterways there’ll eventually be more & more people either taking up Brownlining or Snotrocketlining in the future.
For all you snotrocketliners that do target any of the above mentioned species (Pike, Muskie, Tiger Muskie, Amur pike & Pickerel) on the fly and have your own blog or website and are dedicated to the well being of these magnificent species either through their conservation or just correct catch & release policies, then feel free to cut and paste this image into your sidebar.
A big thank you goes out to Lena for designing the logo....Cheers Hon!
