However, apart from the obvious success anglers are having catching pike with files we need to look at why they do actually work. Pike flies are generally bushy and colourful creations, research seems to show that the pike will take them out of either hunger or general interest.

So here we have a selection of colourful patterns for you to try on the pike. Let us know how you get on with them.
