Re: Muskie on the Fly
Yes, you can do it on the 9wt. My first 2 were on an 8wt. Remember to set the hook really well with these fish, I strip the excess line hard while pulling the rod back (not swinging the rod to the side like I do w/ a spin rod). Muskie have that armored, bony face that doesn't always allow for a good hook set. Surprisingly, every muskie I have ever caught has been hooked right in the side of the mouth like you want. Best of luck.
