No grilling yet, can't bring myself to do it. I had to design my own fly to fish in the soup were these fish line to live I'm calling it the snake charmer.

Not a snakehead but definitely a living dinosaur my first Bowfin . This fish smashed my fly with some bad intentions big blowup when it hit . Fish was about 5 lbs I can't wait to get out and catch another one of these dinosaurs.

Caught another Bowfin and snakehead yesterday. I have to say that im hooked on catching both of these fish now . Once you catch one you will never look at other freshwater fish the same again .

Why do you put your fly rod in your mouth?

Because his hands are full. Lol. Just teasing ya. Frederick, you turning all of your snakeheads loose? What's been your best patterns for them?

I haven't caught a bowfin since I was in 8th grade when I lived in and fished south Florida all of the time.

Yeah I need two hands to hold the fish when holding it horizontally and it's not easy to get the fly rod in there when your hands are full . That and it looks manly.

Judigz you need flies that push water and are weedless enough for where you will be fishing . They hunt off vibrations in the water and sometimes follow your fly for a way before they hit so you need to keep it moving more then you would for largemouth. They kind of remind me of a cross between a largemouth and a musky .

If you had a culture done on that grip I don't think you'd put it in your mouth again. Or maybe that builds your immunity.

Palm sweat and fish slime only add to the flavor profile.
