Ever think about chasing Muskie on Fly. One of my only regrets in filming for SOULFISH 2 is not having had the opportunity to make it up to film some Muskie fishing with Robert Tomes. Robert is a very competent Muskie angler and author of a great book, Muskie on The Fly. Here's a few photos Robert shared with me from a fall outing in Wisconsin.
Muskie are a gorgeous fish and fierce predator. Making them one of the best and most aggressive fish to catch on a fly in North America. I tell people all the time they are the closest thing we have to a Taimen on our continent. Known for shocking top water takes, huge jumps and long strong fights, Muskie are a more than worth while addiction.
Keep an eye out for Robert on the show circuit this winter doing Muskie on The Fly presentations. For more info, take a look at this Article published in the New York Times about Robert and his new book.

The International Fly Fishing Film Festival hosted by Fly Max films out of Canada and featuring scenes from SOULFISH 2 as well as many other great fly flicks, kicked off a couple weeks ago in Calgary. Check out the story and photos here.
