I've got a couple of flyrod musky under my belt since the last post. This is the 1 I caught tonight. Its the biggest I've caught so far. I'm guessing at least 40+ and every bit of 20 pounds.

Awesome fish Paco! Looks like you've found a spot where the tigers prowl.
(And the facial expression looks happier this time too).

Alot of time at the vise and even more time on the water go into fly fishing for musky. But all the quite time tying and the sore shoulder from casting is worth every second. Just for the 5 min. of choas after 1 of these trys to rip the rod outta your hand.

That's it Paco I can't take it anymore. You need to take me with when you go on these trips. I can feel the jealousy welling up in my body as we speak.

Awesome fish man!

PS
The t-shirt needs no changing. Stinkin philadelphians.

Hey the line forms to the left...Just kidding. It more luck than skill in my case. The skill is casting a ten with 7 ft. of leadcore looped on to a big bug line. Oh if forgot to tell ya about the 6/0 articulated attached at the end. Do that for 6 or 7 hours and your ready.

I thought they called these things the fish of 1000 casts? Does false casting count? Hahaha

Well done, I have gone after the elusive musky many times. No luck yet...

Falsecasting is held to a minimium. If i false cast 3 times its 2 times to many. More time with the fly in the air and not in the water is just wasted energy.
You will pay your dues with these fish. I did, 2 weeks of fishing 2 broken rods then I landed my first fish. That was the hardest 1.

Breaking the rods via spastic casting and low flying tree limbs, or smashing lead eyes into 'em?
