Long Flies for Muskies
I asked Terry what flies he was using for muskies and he told me that he was using the patterns of my old friend, Bill Sherer. Bill has long been on the forefront of designs that employ not only size and movement but also the use of the acoustic footprint as well. Predator fish that basically feed on other fish, frogs, mice, leeches, and the like key in very strongly on the acoustic footprint, and Bill’s designs offer this aspect of the natural’s characteristics. You can see Bill’s flies and more at his web site: http://www.wetieit.com/. Here’s a sample of Bill’s work.
