I was hoping to get another one or two yet this fall, based on the forecasts I think I'm done. This was from mid-October, glad I had the camera rolling

See Video in post below please......

Awesome work! So jealous. Want to get in to fly fishing for skies next year. What gear do you use?

Make sure you have gear that is up to the task. Most guys use a 10 or 11 weight rod. A sinking line of some sort slings those big flies a little easier, but if all your fishing is in shallow [<5']water stick to a floating line. I use a short leader that is about 3 feet of heavy [.026 ]mono tied to some 30 lb. knottable wire to prevent bite offs. As far as flies go, I like single hook streamers I tie myself, tied on super sharp 5/0 hooks. The fish in this video ate what would be described as a "deer hair headed deceiver" that I tied, it was not particularly big, maybe 8" long.

Fish water that has a strong population of muskies, and pick a day when the wind is calm. this makes boat control and casting the fly much more enjoyable.
