Hi Phil,

thanks !
Tarpon is what I had in mind with that fly as well as pike, I do have to find the time to get back to the everglades though ;)

I also tied a couple with a hackle tail (in red head) our zander (sort of walleye) do pretty well on them too. see pic.

I believe the pike fly with double zonker is something that won't cast very easily, but it will do with a 10 or 11 wt line on a 10wt rod, as long as you don't keep the leader too long.
It can also be tied with EP fibre tail or H2O combined with Icelandic sheephair wich also has a fantastic action
a 25 -35 pound Yukon pike sounds great, maybe some day ;) ...
