TD55,
Welcome - great to see some more Warm Water Insurgents here on the Paff forum to show up the trout snobs.
Remember our WWI motto: "Trout are for suckers!"

Great pics. Love the bloody hand shot (reminds me of some good muskie days). Bass fishermen show off their scuffed thumbs when fishing is good. Muskie guys just look at cuts.

TD5,
I really like your flies - awesome.

I usually tie a short length of bite wire to my muskie flies before they go in the meat box.
What's your opinion? Do you use wire or heavy flouro? Do you tie the bite tippet when you tie your fly on to fish or do you build an integral bite tippet into each fly?

I use 80lb flouro for my bite guard. Rather than buying a bunch of different sizes of flouro to tie a tapered leader I find that since the flies are so heavy when wet a tapered leader is not necessary. I go straight 80lb about 5 feet from line to fly. The size does not scare fish away plus the flouro helps hide it a little. Musky are not leader shy. I have also caught walleye and bass while musky fishing with the same set up so they don't mind it either.

Interesting. Thanks. I agree, they're not leader shy. I still prefer a short section of 20lb in mid-leader as a "class tippet" - this is mainly in the event I get a snag and have to break the fly off.

Well I lied I forgot I do put in a bout a 6" piece of 25lb mono between my fly line and leader if I get snagged I can break it off. It hurts to lose a fly but hurts worst to lose a 70 or 80 dollar fly line. I learned the hard way. I broke a fly line on the snag from hell.
