Fly Tying

Pike&Musky flies from the vise!

Recommended Posts

I have spent more of my time fishing for pike and walleye than trout and salmonoids. Flyfishing I started with trout and steelhead. Pike and walleye was gear growing up. Time to venture further into that, I have that 300 m from my front deck!

Partridge 35mm shanks are longer then Fishskull 35mm shanks cos' the actual shank part is 35mm, not the whole thing, so i hid the power rattle on the shank in this fly!

corney! I've alway's thought if you can't live where you want to fish? Learn to fish where you live!

Agreed! I have fished hard with bugs and a fly rod and had some fish on. Mostly pike, want to focus on walleye. You almost have to beat the perch off a Muddler minnow? Been trying to fish an 8 wt TFo rod for the most part so a perch isn't a great fight.

 

Kept sharing those bugs, materials list would be cool. Recipes would be of great assistance to newer tyers but take time to put together.

Adam, I love the ostrich collars you tie. I will have to steal some of your ideas and adapt them for the salt
