Monster Magic Continued With Video

Monster Magic Continued With Video

I am still working on a fly-tying story by Chip Cromarty on his pike fly called the Monster Magic. I have a great photo here of Fly Fisherman publisher Steve Hoffman with a giant pike caught on this fly, but little did I know that there was also video of him catching the fish.

The first pike in the clip is a trophy for anyone, but the real "sow" is much larger, and doesn't show up in this clip until the end so be patient, or scroll forward to see probably the biggest fly-caught North American pike I've even seen on film.
