  1. I am new to fly fishing and have been doing it for about five weeks. I was using a gurgler and I caught a catfish on a gurgler I tied. Do they do this often?
  2. Any recommendations for tying a weedless frog? I've tested over 20 variations with no luck keeping the hook upright so it doesn't drag and catch on moss. It's always 50/50 for me. Maybe there's a trick to casting it?
  3. A pattern developed by Pat Cohen that can be quite successful on Pike and Musky, not to mention Mister Big Mouth. This is tied on (rear) 3/0 Universal Predator X; (front).4/0 Start by starting your thread just behind point then tie in a short piece of Mason hard type mono #20, f Cut a section of Magnum rabbit strip (color to match) and trim all hair off of tail (leaving a 1 or 2" on the tip) Next poke a small hole in strip (by pulling strip down to point and pushing it through ), then pull mono through hole and pull mono forward, tie it in at starting place. This loop helps keep tail level and stop it from getting wrapped around hook.Then tie in white deer (on top, spin to bottom) Then tie in first clump of natural deer hair (pay attention to the length), then trim butt ends short (I use double edge Blade for this). THEN use a hair packer and pack tight, then repeat by tying in white , spin to bottom , then natural on top (butt ends cut short , repeat , repeat, till you get to the last clump, and with that you leave butt ends long Then trim top and bottom and tie into front 4/0 hook , by using a few beads and a length of 30# masons Then tie in front section , same as back, (except the tail) Trim bottom and shape sides and head section Then cut the ears out (using ultra suede or 2 mm foam), glue in the ears, and thread rubber legs through front , for whiskers. Add eyes , and CCG underside and eyes So there you have Pat Cohen's Big Ben
