Pike and Muskie are all business. They're at the top of the food chain, and
as predators, are designed to easily capture prey items using their razor-
sharp teeth to penetrate the skin of prey. These same sharp teeth will
easily cut a regular monofilament [inaudible: 00:15], so you need to use
wire leaders. There are a variety of quality wire leaders on the market,
many of which you can tie knots around. Use 6 to 12 inches of wire leader
with your leader system when fly fishing for Pike and Muskie in order to
prevent losing your flies.
