Nightwatchman – Pike fly tying – video

The Nightwatchman is my own pattern, and a personal favourite for fishing in low light conditions: Dusk, dawn, nighttime and days with dark skies, rain and thunder. This version is tied mostly for pike and other large predators, but it is great streamer for trout as well.
When the Nightwatchman is doing its rounds… things can get nasty :0)
