@Ebroesicke. I have used them they are a good choice for someone who is just getting started into muskie fishing and they catch fish. I have been at it for ten years now and i prefer heavy flies suits my casting style. I take advantage of the weight of the fly and let it pull my line.

Yo dude... I'm in B-town too. I hear there's some Muskie on the Lehigh near the outflow of the Jordan. I have 'toon as well. If you wanna head out sometime let me know...(pm is better...)

Anyone else go Muskie fishing in the LV?

Thanks ramcatt, I might need to hit the craft store tonight.

@Phil, I only fished the lehigh once or twice w/ gear a while back...but i visit the valley a lot and I'm eager to try the musky thing out again. I usually hear of a few good reports from the river each year.

I'd be down to check it out again.

The only time I would use a smaller sigle hook fly is if I only had acess to a 8 wt. I fish heavy rod so I can get the bigger fly out there. I your lookin for single hook 1s is the hangtime, or a ep fiber fly. the hangtime will push more water makin it easier of a musky to find it.

so what wt rod are you guys throwing? 10? I have an 8 and 10, but I'm guessing I would need the 10 to chuck some of these bigger flies. Line choice? I know there are lots of variables, but what is the one you pick up the most?

I use an 8w but thats just my preference. Sink tip lines for the big river. Weight forward floating for the shallow rivers. I like okuma reels they have always been relieble.

Thanks guys, gonna give them a more serious shot this year. I have both of those set ups, so I should be good from a gear standpoint. Now i just need to work on casting, presentation, and fishing ability. Minor details.

Wear a football helmet and safety glasses lol. Seriously though be careful my buddy put a big rat fly in his shoulder. Just don't get frustrated. Keep at it man it is well worth it. Once you get that muskie thrashing at the end of your line you will know what i mean.
