Fishing for predatory fish such as pike, perch, sea bass and sea trout is becoming more and more popular, both in Scandinavia and in the rest of Europe. These are species found in many waters and along the coasts with free fishing and therefore easily accessible to many fly fishermen in their neighbouring areas. When it comes to pike, there is no species in northern Europe that is growing as large and is found in many waters that do not require expensive fishing licenses on exclusive beats.
When you fish with flies that go in or very close to the surface, you get an extra dimension for the predator fishing. Watching a large pike or high-back perch hunt for and completely demolish your popper in the surface causes the adrenaline levels in the body to soar. Guideline have therefore developed Predator DX, a powerful yet well-balanced fly line adapted to be used with larger streamers, poppers and pike flies. It has a taper that makes it easy to turn over the larger and wind-catching flies that you usually use.
