I finally landed my 1st musky on a fly rod after a couple of hook ups. I am a musky tramp now.

Big congrats!

A musky (tiger in this case) on a fly is unforgettable.

Had 2 other strikes that night. And my buddy and I ended up with catching musky's on the fly that night.
That fish hit at dark 30 right off my rod tip. It was forty inches the biggest musky i ever caught with gear or on a fly. And we had for a cam was a cell go figure.

I think 90 percent of the time they hist at the end of the retrieve. I've learned to do a few figure 8's before pickin up my rod.

Nice fish! What fly is that? Looks awesome!

Its hard to do a figure 8 from while standing in the water especially with a 9ft. stick. The fly is a firetiger roadkill.

Paco good job man. That's my goal for the season is to land one on the fly rod. Life has been getting in the way of me getting out to make that happen but hopefully over the next month I'll get a few chances to put the boat on the water.

A 40" fish is awesome with any means but especially sweet on the fly. Congrats!

The Allegheny is a good place to go for muskies with a fly rod. It has a good population of fish. They can't get away from you deep or offshore like in a lake so much, the moving water makes the figure-8 not quite as necessary. And the population is a good size to eat flies (#'s of 30-40 inchers) I don't know where you are, but if you and a buddie can get up here, the 2 of you can have some fun taking turns running the boat and casting. Big streamers work well in gold/black, 'natural' or 'shad' colorations, and gold/green. The water is pretty clear usually.
