Bulls and Muskie – Videos

Might be a stretch but something similar about Big Bulls and Muskie Fishing. Here are two videos from this week that grabbed my attention. While watching first video their is a quote that really does rings home. The cowboy talks about how intimidating this certain Bull is. I feel the same way when releasing muskie. The power of these beasts is not always on display like Bull riding, but that 8 second ride has too many correlations to fishing a big Muskie.

The second video is about an absolute huge Muskie that wasn’t caught on a fly, but was a least caught casting. Even casting lures all day is a ton of work. So have respect for any method of Muskie fishing that deals with casting, even though I choose to do it on a fly. Give the muskie video a watch, and just imagine that size of fish coming in on your figure 8.

Check out the two videos, you might be asking yourself why the Bull riding clip, well this summer if you follow us on Social Media you saw that I went to my first rodeo, and it will not be my last. While the rodeo in McBain, Mi was a blast I have a desire to go so see a Western Rodeo and this rancher that is working with the PBR events has me fired up. I feel like as a muskie angler I am similar to a cowboy. Again probably a stretch, but I tip my hat to the ladies and work from sun-up to sun down.

I sort of feel bad for the little trout, but the footage is amazing so thank you little trout for sacrificing yourself for this video clip. Check out the link below.

Jumping Brown Trout Video

This short clip below has me thinking of warmer times, looking forward to the upcoming trout season. Even though right now it feels so far away. Big week this week for tying and hope to generate some good content video wise. I know we will be tying a few good foam patterns for the July / August foam hatch. Make sure to come back to links. In the mean time a little video for ya. See if you can see the brown trout hunting down the dragonfly before it jumps.

Thoughts for a new Top Water Fly

These flying fish have me inspired to work on a new fly pattern and  retrieve, defiantly two handed retiree  to  the match speed needed, and just need to figure out how to cast a fly that has wings.  No mater this is a cool little video.

The Grind

Really enjoyed this short video because of the honest truth of it all.  I get the opportunity to guide and fish for muskie a few weeks a year.  This video really does capture most of the days, it’s a Grind.  But the belief that you need to have as angler that the next cast could be the one, is what I really do enjoy.

Jungle Fish – Costa Sunglasses

Follow a group of anglers as they uncover an ancient fish in the heart of a south-American rainforest. If they can figure out how to catch them on a fly rod, the fish could save the local community.
