Northern Pike

Film about my fishing trips to Russia, mostly Siberia in last few years.


Floating an unfamiliar river for some super aggressive pike. I searched around for a while, and then found one of the best pike holes I've fished in a while!

Fly rod: 9' 8wt Orvis Clearwater rod (4 piece)
Reel: Waterworks‑Lamson Liquid Fly Reel 3.5
Line: 8wt scientific anglers fly line, 20lb tapered flouro leader with a 20lb RIO wire tippet.

Rod/reel setup:
-Quantum Octane 6'6" medium heavy action rod with an Abu Garcia silver max and 30lb braided line, connected to a 27lb 9" steel leader.
***The rod and reel I was using is a cheap setup, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. I only use it at the river in case something happens, I'd rather break that than an expensive rod/reel.
