Tiger Muskie Bait!

Got a little time off coming up, thinking of heading up to Mayfield Lake in WA for a little Tiger Muskie action!!  At least that’s one possible option, being that it is the middle of October, (the best month of the year), there are only 1000 other options…  The hardest part is just making up your mind!

Big Flies!

Ok, well, maybe these are a little too big!  Maybe not though, I would not be one bit afraid to throw these for Bulls, or troll them for Browns and Macks (they’ll get eaten for sure)!! Casting them may be a bit of an issue on anything less than a 10wt but then I’v never been known for following any kind of “rules” (think 30′ of type 6 shooting head on a 6wt or 8wt)..  Let me know what you think..

The top fly is 11″ American Shad and the bottom is a 10″ Kokanee or Rainbow pattern



New Products from Pro Tube!!

Picked up a couple of samples from the Guy’s at Pro Sportfisher, aka Pro Tubes, some new stuff they have coming out this year.  I just have to say, these Guy’s got it going on!!  When it comes to tubes, in my opinion, there is no better than the stuff from Pro Tube!!  (and their not even paying me to say that!)  What’s new for this year?  Well, among other things, their sonic disks are now available in anodized metal..  So for those of you out there like me, that saw a few uses for the plastic ones but couldn’t bare to put them on the front of your flies, the answer is anodized metal..  Very COOL!!  Also new this year is synthetic Jungle Cock..  I know, synthetic Jungle Cock has been around for a long time, but I have never seen anything quite like these.  They are printed on some kind of Tyvek like paper, and the they look EXTREMELY real..  They are very tough, and super workable, pick some up and give them a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed, I know I’m not, plus I won’t be needing to drop $150 on a new neck!!  They have some other stuff coming out too, like tungsten impregnated tubes, and some super neat ultra tiny micro tubes!!   Stay Tuned…..

“Foxy” Tubes

Some winter steelhead tubes.  These are all Arctic Fox with minimal flash.  I kept the body simple with just an “X” wrapped “Mirage” mylar around the tube.  These should fish very nice, now all I have to do is get out and fish them!!
