    Well now guys, after seein that video i guess i'll have another destination on my bucket list of places to go. I never once heard the drag activated in that video. Looks like he was in a float tube with fins on and a helmet cam. Thanks for the vid gator.
    Dan, a full grown mallard drake? That's some kind of serious predator. I'm a believer.
    Arp, we've done big pike down the Tanana out of Nenana off on some sloughs. Tochacet slough comes to mind. 48" stuff. Fished with a native out of Healy named Tommy Nicholi. Fun little eskimo and he knew the waters. The bigger chunk you threw the bigger the fish. Those were the days. I'll be back.

    That's the funniest thing I've heard this weekend. Thanks Dan. I'm just glad I wasn't drinking a beer.

    First going for realism we have this: Dub the Thorax: Weekend recap, and bugs, man....lots of bugs.

    Secondly we have an impressionistic version: Musky Patte Popper "Baby Duck" - Fly Tying

    Since a lot of wild baby ducks are shades of brown with cream, I'd ditch the yellow unless your ducks are of the yellow variety.

    I think that may be a good idea, I was thinking more along the lines of the rubber ducky in my tub when I said yellow.

    Figured you were and I mentioned it only since those fly imitations above used a lot of yellow. On the other hand I do like Yellow for Pike flies--part becuase they catch fish and part because my first Pike was on a Yellow with Red Diamonds Dardevle.

    Keep this in mind guys. I dont think color is a really big factor to these big boys as long as the action and the presentation is there. I think one could throw out shreds of last weeks old sock and as long as the action was working he'd nail it.

    If anybody can tie a duckling fly, it would be Pat Cohen. Check out his deer hair chickadees:

    I would think the feet are the big attraction and would have to be included.

    This isn't my picture but I've actually witnessed this happen.
    At the "elbow" of Cape Cod there's a large gray seal colony and the great whites have taken notice.

    Looks like we need to come up with a "Seal" pattern and be looking for one hell of a rod to get it out there i guess. LMAO.
