Big pike don't feed everyday... they can go weeks between meals if conditions aren't right. To catch a big pike you have to be in the right place at the right time. To catch a big pike consistently you have to be in the right place at the right time, every time... Waving a rod and pulling a fly past a fish that isn't switched on will only prolong your wait. Sit on your hands, kill some time and present your first cast at "killing time".
