The Springfly

Big flies can be very effective, when the pike are on the hunt for a serious meal. But when the fly is attacked and locked between the powerful jaws of the pike, you have to pull the complete fly free, before you have a chance to set the hooks, and the result is often, that you loose the fish. A good solution to this problem is The Spring Fly a multitube fly with a insert spring, who enables the hooks to move, even though the fly is jammed solid in the jaws of death.
