The fish of ten thousand casts starts with the right rig. With RIO's Pike and Musky rig, you can cast to ten thousand with the meanest combination of line, leader, and fly to entice an ambush from one of these toothy critters.

Freshwater Fangs

The wolves of the water await in the depths for an ambush opportunity. When it comes—it's game on—followed by pure chaos. Pike and Musky are truly the fish of 10,000 casts as these predators are curious yet, shrewd. You might stand a chance with a good retrieve or final figure 8 to induce the lethal strike. This kind of angling demands patience, and precise gear. Speed up the curve with our Pike/Musky setup and battle any lake creature you strip from the depths.

Elite Warmwater Predator

Our Elite Warmwater Predator Line, paired with a Pike/Musky Leader and Wire Bite, will ensure that when you finally get that powerful strike from a predator, all you have to do is strip set—worry free. Because the last thing you just be focused on is losing your catch due to gear that can't handle their razor-sharp teeth.

Pike/Musky Leaders & Wire Bite Tippet

The Pike & Musky leaders are an ultra-stiff nylon leader attached to a tough, bite resistant knottable wire shock tippet or stealthy fluoro configuration that is ideal for Pike, Musky and similar toothy species.Alternatively, anglers can tie Powerflex Wire Bite Tippet to a standard Powerflex leader to attach a tough, flexible nylon-coated wire that's perfect for those sharp toothed critters. This knot-table, braided wire is supple enough to tie directly to the fly without a twist clip.

A bird, a plane? No, it's DUCK NORRIS, here to kick the mouth of creatures that feed on poor baby birds. Convincing a Pike and musky your fly is worth their time requires going beyond the ordinary with something gigantic, flashy, and a little strange.
