I decided to get some after work fishing in. It was a good call. Got my first musky by me in my boat since I got it last fall. This musky crushed the fly on the surface and came fully out of the water. It was not a top water fly, but I lost a back cast and was stripping in the fly quickly with the rod tip raised so I could recast to the bank. The current was a little faster and the fly was moving across the top of the water when a musky came out of the water for the fly and rolled on it. Jacked him with a hook set and the dance to land the fish solo began. Nice to see some top water action.
