Ovidiu Skeleton Diver – pike, musky and bass fly tying

Published on Jun 07, 2018 by Editor in chief

A pattern inspired by Ovidiu Mihut, a Romanian fly fishing guide, who is part of some TV-shows on the Fishing & Hunting Chanel and @Romanian National TV Chanel 2. He wanted me to tie some flies for pike fishing in a shallow water river delta. One of these should be a white popper. Since I was inspired by the skeleton logo fish and some mental images of an animal skeleton I saw and photographed in a Swedish pike lake some years ago – I came up with the Ovidiu Skeleton Diver.

I think it is bad to the bone – and Danish pike seems to like it. I sure hope their Romanian cousins does that as well.
