Chatting to Rob Edmunds who loves a Snake for Pike.
Tried to come up with a bouyant version. Short leader, sinking line job.
Hopefully test them soon!

I don't often fish for Pike with a fly, but I'm always interested to learn. What is the advantage of a floating fly with a sinking line?
What type of water would you use these on, and what size would the Pike be that you were targeting?

cheers
Jerry

Hi Jerry, can use em on pretty much any kind of water.
The main advantage for me is being able to control the depth you are fishing at by leader length. And retrieve speed . Less time fouling up and able to fish slowly, especially this time of year.
Hopefully the heads will be bouyant enough to impart a lot of movement.
Have you ever tried fishing a Rasputin, Poon or boobie? Nothing new.Quite efficent method.
Worth a try, Dave
They will occasionally swim off with it as you stop and pour a drink

I think they'd also be great over the weedbeds in the Spring - Summer ,

They'd cause nice disturbance and some spectacular surface action when the Pike strikes.👍
Yep, with a slow intermediate so no line wake.
You can turn the heads either way up so you get a different angle of attack.
The Grey material is man made stuff so doesn't absorb water. So hopefully better for a popper style.
