Not sure how many guys on here fly fish for muskie but if you do you gotta check out a fly design by brad bohen called hang time. I tied a few of these massive chuck and duck flies and did great during the first two weeks of december. Caught 3 muskies no monsters but any muskie on a fly is a great catch.

If there tyed right and you have right setup even 12 or 13 inch tandem hangtimes are not that hard to cast. I think Brad and Lucky call the tandem hangtimes the "double trouble".

I would like to watch zero to hero. I have seen the trailer looks good. The guy that made it i think his name is robert thompson aka third year fly fisher does great work. Anyhow yea the hang time is a great fly. I recently made a really simple muskie fly made from fish hair and some flash about 12 inches long worked great i'm hoping this winter isn't to rough i'd like to do some muskie fishing on the allegheny.

I dont like synthetics they tangle. No matter what. And collapse in the water.

It is just one of my quick flies. I have a whole arsenal. I like thick weighted deer hair and marabou combinations. Big surface patterns have produced some fish over the years as well.

that makes more sense than...

"they tangle. No matter what. And collapse in the water."

I think the right balance of both natural and syn is the way to go

I love the look of confusion i get from people when i'm fly fishing down at the river and they ask what i'm fishing for and i say muskie. They look at me like i'm totally insane lol. I never could figure out why muskie on the fly hasn't picked up here in western pa. We have awesome muskie water, hell maybe the best in the east.

I just never bought into the idea of the single hook puglisi fibers streamers. I know they work. But I think a bucktail style tandem gives ya more action and a bigger profile in the water than there single counter part.

I guess everybody just has their preferences. I am always trying new patterns and creations. I think that is half the fun.
