The main way i keep focus on my fly is your the 1 giving it action. Your the 1 manipulating the line and rod in a manner that makes your fly move in a wouned or fleeing action. The cast you day dream or have a brain fart might be the 1 you have a fallow you dont see or a strike you miss. Trust me river musky are like ghosts. They drift in and out of sight so smoothly and quickly and leave ya wondering if ya really saw something. You gotta be aware of your fly and whats going n around it as much as you can.
I've got caught up b.s. with my friends and missed 2 strikes so far. Just because of a lose of focus. It will happen. You cant be " on the clock "everycast of every minute you fish. This is the mind game.

Yeah this happens to everyone now and again. You aren't paying attention just for a split second and bam you miss a strike. They are probably the sneakiest fish that I have ever had the chance to fish. The mind game for sure is exactly like Paco says. You have to be paying attention at all times which can be hard. It's not a day on the water with the boys talking and gabbing all the time. It's mostly complete silence because everyone is concentrating.

Wow thats a nice fish!!!

One of my favorite things about fly fishing is being able to hit the vice and try different species. And I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to try for Muskie. I know some spin guys that have caught them on the Lehigh River near the hamilton dam...I doubt this is "numbers" water though...

It looks like a nice reward after a lot of hard work...can you quantify a lil more? (...like you get a hook up every X time you fish)
Is there a particular time of day that best?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm just trying to think if this is even close to a reality for me, if I have time to grind it out etc...if not, I should stop day dreaming and get back to work. haha

if you can catch a fish like that you are man enough to wear what you want.

Is that fly your own design or from someone else's design? Lake or river?

The fly is my take on a design. Thats the rewarding part of whipin something up in the vice then taking it to the water and get feedback. You dont catch a fish everytime your out. And theres no such thing as a numbers musky water. If there was I'd be fishiing it . Its a grind and not everyone gets it. Some guys are just wired different.

I've caught some nice fish before and never felt under gunned. This fish put a deeper bend in my echo than i thought possible.
