Yep your right I have seen some pics of Ramcatts toothy critter flys and fish. He knows his stuff. But you fish with what you have confidence in and mine just happen to be tandems.

I caught my first musky on a 3/0 tandem about 6 inches long. They just keep gettin bigger and bigger. I got couple on triples now that are about 15 inches. But theres a trade off I'm not a strong enuff caster to get out much further than 35 to 40ft.

I'm no pro at it just enjoy it. Some days i catch them some days i don't. I'm just happy to be one of the very few that can say i have caught muskie on the fly.

that is one advantage to flies under 10"... casting distance

I have some Cortland Quick descent lines 125' lines (30ft & 15ft head) and can work up to about 120' out of a boat

I mainly fish rivers and with a streamer style line. My biggest problem is line thats stripped. The current takes it down stream. And have to fight that loop of line on the next haul. I tried a basket and hate it. I talked to the cortland sales rep at our local fly shop and he had nothiong but good things to say about the quick decent lines. He used 'em for stripers in the surf.

yeah... no current and out of the water makes some difference

The QD is a great line!
but with the larger flies you need to treat is a shooting head with Belgian style casts
with an int running line... wading with out a basket is no fun

No. 9 dam is another one that might be ok. I'm not sure how the parking would be with the snow.

Have any of you ever tried using the hollow tie method popularized by Bob Popovics? It is a style of fly that traditionally uses bucktail tied in a way that gives you maximum profile with a minimum of materials. I have seen other materials used but bucktail is usually the most common material. I am new to musky fly fishing...ok I've tried it once or twice, buts its something I will spend more time at next year. Just a thought as I look at all of these "half a chicken" flys, cause there's no way my crappy casting could chuck those things out there. I can however cast a big hollow fly OK.

curious...what do you guys use to connect the sections when making the tandems?

I've only done it for trout and I feel like there's no way the light braided stuff i have will hold up.

Yea i have paco. Right below the dam is ok casting. You must be thinking of the spill way shortly below the dam. It is awesome for casting as long as water levels are good because you will have to wade. It is alot like piney.
