Picket Pin

The Picket Pin, fished as a wet fly has been productive on trout, landlocked salmon, and panfish.
I tie it in several sizes, but I like it in size 14 best.

This fly has been around for a long time. I have carried it for many years and fish it often. The results I have obtained when fishing this fly makes me say to myself, why don't you fish it more.


  1. That's funny because I too have a couple of flies and spinners that produce better than others, however I find myself buying and trying other things. It is the fun of experimentation I guess.

  2. Ryan,
    I guess thats the nature of fishing, perhaps the next fly we use will be the best. And all the while the best is in our box.

  3. Great stuff as always. Enjoying your blog.

  4. Adam,
    Thanks for the compliment.
    I enjoy doing it.

  5. Interesting fly. Have never heard of it, but it looks like it would be successful in my neck of the woods as well. Great post, all of the flies you've shared over the past few months have been great.

  6. Your flies make me want to learn to tie.......Waterorker
