    Saltwater? Or maybe muskies? Or are you looking to deliberately looking to get snagged so you can pull down some trees?

    Good looking ties.  I'd put them in my brown trout streamer box.

    When my fly is down...I'm having a good day!

    Barry, How did the NE Ohio Castapoolza go for you? We had over an inch of rain saturday, still managed to put a new floor in my boat.

    Kevin, those flies look good, have muskie written all over them. There's a couple guys around here that fly fish muskies. From what I hear they occasionally catch one. Bet those flies would be good tied on a 3/0 VMC double or maybe a 2 or 3" metal tube.

    very nice kev, what is that fro material you used on the body/head? 
     
    Having one of those MFers whizing past my ears would be comparable to taking Omaha beach with a 20mm trained on me.

    Here is a couple of mine.

    same.

    Don't know about pike, for muskies, all the flies posted look good. Best color combinations for fishing shallow for muskies, imo are solid black, black or brown/yellow, black or brown/orange. Casted for muskies for years. Fished weed lines with jerkbaits, bucktails, surface lures. These color schemes are producers for plugs, especially solid black. The same would apply for flies.

    Anyone who wants to catch muskies on flies out of lakes would do well to choose lakes with good clarity and well developed weed lines. Fish both inside and outside edges. Upper Chautauqua, Conneaut would be good choices. There are others in NW Pa and western NY, Canadohta, Sugar, Findley, Bear, Cassadaga, just to mention a few. You want your fly running shallow, just a few inches under the surface. With muskies, speed kills. The faster you can strip your flies the better.

    You guys that are bent on catching a muskie on a fly can knock yourselves out. Be prepared to work your **** off. I'll just troll for them, wait for a rip while sipping on a nice c0cktail. With my age, back problems, casting really isn't much of an option anymore. Love being on the water, especially in the summertime. All you fly guys pursuing muskies, good luck! You'll need it.

    mxdad, glad you enjoyed the OH castapoolza. I wanted to go too. Would have been great to see some of these guys cast. Just so happened it was my grandson's birthday and we had a party for him. Planning on next year.

    Thanks for the tips Plum bob. I admitt throwing a 10wt with a big sinking head isnt for everyone. It is work and it's not like traditional fly fishing. But I'm not gonna try to explain. Guys that do this just get it. My Dad said fly fishing for muskies is about as sain as jumping outta 2nd story window. Im either crazy or stupid but I love it.

    I have yet to hook a musky but have had some fallows. And you know what, it just fueled the fire even more.

    Great stuff everybody! Figured I would add a couple since I am planning on pursuing more flyrod pike and musky.

    A lot of people talk about using trout as bait Wanted to make one up to look like a rainbow trout. Let the bashing begin for my choice of background. My foam sheets are not big enough to handle a 9 inch fly and it was the first random magazine I grabbed




    Anybody ever try for them with top water flies??? I have read about it, so I tried tying up one on the advice of another forum member.
