Default Pike Flies

Does anyone know where i can source some large(4-5"+) pike flies in central/northern Alberta?

I'm trying to find some bigger flies for a fishing trip and cant seem to locate anything online.

If anyone can point me in a direction that would be much help.

Take two streamers, one bushy and the other a bit more slim and tie the slim streamer to the hook shank of the bushy streamer. Use braid or dacron backing to tie them together and use a very small loop knot on the trailing fly.

You get an articulated fly with two hooks just in case there is a short strike. Instant sex dungeon!

Contact Fish Tales in Calgary. I am sure they would sort you out. I think the owner got his start guiding pike fly fishing.

Pike flies are somewhat seasonal, so the selection might be kind of slim.
