chub on pike fly

Throughout last week I had been out for a couple of times, mostly an hour or two around late afternoon.
My mission “pike on fly” resulted in “chub on fly”. I observed quite a few decent chub following my fly. The first fish came off after playing it for a while. Another one of 2 pounds then took the size 6/0 flash-fly properly and could be landed safely. 

Meanwhile masses of dead leaves have dropped from the trees into the river. Today’s drop-shot fishing became more than annoying by hooking leaves instead of perch. 



Temperatures are dropping, leaves are falling - pike-time!
