Granato’s Fire Tiger El Chupacabra

As fly fishing for large toothy critters gains more ground here in the Northwest, so do the fly patterns. When Pike and Musky begin to get active in the early spring/summer months as the water temps warm, big flies are the key. As a fish nears forty inches in length he is not looking for small morsels anymore, meat is his diet, and lots of it. The El Chupacabra series of flies fits the bill in this case, at ten inches in length with lots of flash and dance, this will gain the attention of even the pickiest of fish. The large spun head pushes water and makes enough noise to bring fish from below sunken logs and the deepest hiding spots where these fish reside awaiting their next chance to ambush prey.

CF Chuck-n-Duck Olive/Yellow

When fishing still water for smart, wary fish, movement is of the utmost importance. If your fly looks like a ten inch long stick bait being pulled through the water column on your ten weight, you’re line isn’t going to go tight too often. Our fish in the Northwest have a lot of forage to prey on, from squawfish to small trout, the options abound for our musky out West. Baitfish patterns like the CF Chuck-n-Duck have a place in my fly box because they represent a lot of the prey these fish see on a day in, day out basis. The movement of the EP fibers that make the body of the fly and subtle flash represent a more subdued, more lifelike fly for chasing toothy critters. As with all predatory fish, the big eye seems to be a key factor in attracting these large predators as well.

Goodman's Perch Cyclops Popper

One of our absolute favorite flies to lash to a nine foot length of straight 100 pound fluorocarbon is the Cyclops Popper! If you want to see explosive takes on the surface, this is your fly. Whether fished on a full floating line or an intermediate sink tip, this thing pushes water, plain and simple. If you like poppers that spit, chug, and send sprays of water three feet in the air with each strip, look no further. The very first time I tied this fly on my leader, it hardly hit the water before I saw the greatest take I’ve ever seen from a musky. The fish didn’t even stick, but my heart rate didn’t slow down enough to make another cast for at least ten minutes. Side View

Black Tsunami

In our experience with toothy critters in the Northwest, black is THE color. I’ve seen more fish taken on black flies than any other color. For what reason I cannot really speculate, the forage in the places we chase musky in the Northwest is not black by any means. In fact, the place where black prevails most is a reservoir where squawfish abound as the main forage so black is not the obvious choice but is my favorite color under all conditions. The Tsunami itself combines length and movement, with a unique foam popper style head that pushes water and makes a lot of “noise” underwater. It can be snaked along on the surface with a floating line but the most productive way to fish the fly is on an intermediate sink fly line and stripped slow allowing the fly to literally “hover” in the water column. Sometimes when the musky are laid up or lethargic at some points in the summer, a slow crawl with a black fly is the only way to get fish to eat. This fly is weedless.

Hamilton’s Bush Pig 2/0 Black/Red

Like any other fish worth chasing, musky get picky. After seeing nothing but ten to fourteen inch flies, smaller and less obtrusive flies can be the way to go. A unique blend of synthetic materials goes into the Bush Pig. In the heat of summer when fish have been beaten up with the usual large, flashy flies, these fish can be enticed simply by changing things up a bit. Hamilton’s Bush Pig may look like a small blip on the radar amongst the larger, more popular flies most anglers are throwing, but stands alone as a go to fly when things get tough out there. It may look insignificant alongside larger flies in the box, but believe me when I say, it fishes BIG!

Rainy's CF Baitfish, Perch
In many northern lakes, Muskies and Pike feed on Yellow Perch. Sometimes the big predator fish will eat anything that gets in theie terretory, but often large mature fish have been hooked before and are wise and cautious. As in all all fishing siturations, it pays to match the hatch, and if you are fishing lakes, which have abundant Yellow Perch, this fly will do that.
