Default Re: Muskie on the Fly

Musky, I use 9 or 10 weight rod is fine. On leaders, some build there leaders
with butt section 52 lb, down to a 39lb, down to 17lb, you want some thing that gives so you don't break you fly line. Add a wire leader if you choose I don't use one most of the time because I am fishing for stripers when I catch my musky. Interesting thing is I caught 39 musky this year only one bite me off! I suggested if you looking for that 50 plus incher use a wire leader then. Also tie your own flies musky fly prices are worse then lures upwards of $15 -20 dollars for $3.98 worth of materials hooks being the expensive part. Good luck Wess
