Having caught pike on flies in Ontario, my one big piece of advice is to ALWAYS use a strong wire leader. I can't tell you how many flies and spinning lures I lost to pike while targeting smallies on my Ontario trip last summer. It was definitely a war of attrition, and the pike won.
PS Those pike really tear up the flies, so be sure to use durable materials.
