Default Fishing show first!

I was watching the New Fly Fisher, and guess what they were fishing for? WALLEYE!! They started off in a lake and drifted Clousers on a sinking line. The first Walleye they got was a brute. 25" or so.

The next thing you know he has a drag burner going and thinks it's Pike, but no. The biggest stinking Lake Whitefish I have ever seen and I have seen some big ones. He said it was the biggest one he had seen. I checked the IGFA records and I am sure it would have busted every tippet record but maybe one, and even that may have been smaller than the fish he let go.

Wow. A fly fishing for Walleye show. Never saw that before.

I hope you recorded it Dan, it would be refreshing to see a fly fishing show going after anything but trout and salt species.

I think they rerun it tomorrow, and I might. I have never ever seen a fishing show where they fly fish for Walleye. Plus that Whitefish was a beast.

We get Walleye like that up here all the time and bigger, but you never ever see a show about it. Better yet the guy was actually using a fly line and a real fly. None of the nonsense you get if you google fly fishing for Walleye which is almost all bad info.

Here is a big black one

Of course it's possible, but is there any real advantage to using fly tackle for walleyes over other types of tackle? With trout the advantage is obvious -- you need the specialized tackle to present imitations of tiny insects.

Does it matter? Not to me

I don't fly fish because it has any certain advantages - I fly fish because I enjoy. I very often catch fewer fish than my regular tackle peers, but I still continue to do it simply because I enjoy fly fishing more.

If choosing what tackle I am going to use depends on which one will yield the most fish, then I might as well break out some live bait.
