Toothy Tiger Muskies!

This year I have been throwing prototype muskie flies for Rainy's Flies which gives me the opportunity to fish many different flavors. There are a few patterns that out shine the others, and many are Nick Granato patterns. The fly pictured above is the Ghetto Tramp. Rainy's already manufactures some of his popular patterns such as El Chupacabra and Sasquatch, in many varieties, all of which I highly recommend.

If your not familiar with tiger muskie, they are a cross between a northern pike and a muskellunge. They are super aggressive fish that have an outlaw attitude to match their size and voracious teeth. Like muskellunge they are considered a "fish of a thousand casts" because of the difficulty they present while fishing. Most mornings I fish, I will have muskie after muskie follow my fly all the way to the shore and deny my offering at the very last minute. At least their alligator size keeps my interest even when few or no fish are being caught.
