I use a sharpie but I just tie them as clousers...I don't catch too many perch on the surface.

Nice! What size hook is that?

Ever think of tying in a stinger hook on those bad boys? I don't have any experince fishing for muskie, especially with flies but I get a lot of short strikes on soft plastics from pike in Canada. Can't wait to get up there with a fly rod...

Nice ties Sandy.

Here's a few of the muskie flies I've tied recently.

I build all my own muskie bucktails (spinner lures for conventional fishing) and spinnerbaits and learned the hard way to include hooks toward the rear. In my experience fishing muskies with conventional gear, these fish often chase down a lure or fly from behind, bite down on it and promply turn to the side. With bucktails, I was almost always catching the fish in the corner of the mouth on the rear treble. I saw the same effect with plugs (most of the time) - fish was hooked on the rear treble. Now I mostly put just one treble in my bucktails. Based on this experience, I like a stinger hook in my musky flies. Most of my musky fishing is on shallow rivers around woody, shoreline cover so I also add a mono loop weed guard enabling the fly to snake over and thru cover a bit better. Some folks swear by enormous flies for muskies (and they do love big lures) but I keep my musky flies to usually under about 8 inches for ease of casting and include a wire bite tippet. As I've pointed out before, keep a muskie fly or two in your bass box just in case you see one of these big fellas while bass fishing.

Tom they are not surface flies. they have lead in them. tied on 3/0 saltty hooks. used a sharpie. fishyidiot, muskies are tryin to bite the tail to stop the bait from escaping. I used to fish Noximixon lake in bucks for them in the 70's. Always hit the fly from the side, but seems a lure gets hit from behind. Maybe the speed is faster on the lure. will have to explore this some more since I'm making big wood lures for them as well.

Sandy...where do you put the lead?

And I like your flies...I do the Clouser thing because it easier and I'm lazy. If they didn't have lead you could still fish them with lead heads.
