I blame this singularly on the fact that I haven't had the right fly.
So this winter has been spent researching and then copying flies I've found on the interwebs.
This is a fly originally tied by Blane Chocklette, a southern musky guide and the inventor of the new "game changer." I just copied it and one similar tied by a guy name Matt Myles. My hope is it will trigger a response from our pike and musky. I'll keep you posted.
