Paco,

Real nice ties. What material do you use when attaching the two hooks on one of your double patterns?

I think muskys and pike can see some of the uv sectrum. I can count on my hand how many fish I have caught on natural colors. And that's not from lack of fishing them. Most have been firetiger or floro orange and red combos.

Thanks dc, I use wire for my junctions.

I was just watching a show on WFN and they were saying that red and white combo really seem to attract pike which is what they were fishing for. I realize we are talking about the musky bite but worth a shot to test the theory. Would it produce better than other color combos? Who knows! I cant see where red and white is supposed to immitate anything. I think maybe those colors in general appeal to them.

I have seen studies that suggest musky and also pike I believe can see into the UV spectrum. I don't think the fish feed nearly as much on site as they do vibration. When they feel a big fly hit the water they go to inspect what it is. Then the flies push alot of water if tied right as well. With musky the fishing is so grueling sometimes that I think the bright flies are more for the fisherman than the fish. It does keep you interested as you watch the flies glide thru the water. I have my own personal favorite colors that I have confidence in but all it takes is one fish on a certain color no matter what it is and that is your new favorite fly.

Right after I catch 1 on a fly I might as well never fish it again because I'm gonna loose it wether it be to a bite of snag. That's the way it went down this yr.

Though I would switch it up from the bright colors I've been sticking to lately. One of the area lakes got a stocking of bows in December...

Got asked to donate some musky flies for a charity that sends wounded veterans to Lake of the Woods musky fishing for a week. They are going to auction off the flies to raise money to do the event. Here was my contribution. A single a topwater and a tandem.

I picked up some Fish Skull Articulated Shanks and some new colors of bucktails at the Lancaster Show on Saturday. Here are my first two attempts at tying articulated patterns for whatever might bite on them.
