I caught one on my first outing for musky with a fly rod two years ago and paid dearly for it. I have put in a couple tens of thousands of casts and finally broke the curse. I have a love/hate relationship with this fish. Anyone else chase this fish with a fly rod?
Nice fish I'm assuming a nearby river? If it was on SML that that was probay 5 years too early to rid your skunk
Correct. It was in the New. Would love to catch one in sml though. Contemplated trying it last fall but couldn't resist the stripers on sml. I at least feel like I have a chance with stripers on a fly on that lake.
Musky aren't that far down on the James. I was way up river from there. I'm throwing a fast action 10 wt. Same rod I use on SML for stripers. I plan on getting either a 9 wt or an 11 wt to add as a second rod to the big fish arsenal. Haven't decided.
