Tiger Boy Meets Musky Man

Tiger Boy Meets Musky Man

December 2008 I opened a hot off the presses Hatches Magazine, there staring me in the face was something like nothing that I’d ever seen before… Brad Bohen’s HANG TIME! That day  my approach for fishing and tying streamers for predatory fish changed drastically. My eyes were opened to “engineering and designing” flies to swim and move in ways flies have never swam and moved before. Fast forward a couple years, countless hours at the vice and on the water, some emails and a few phone calls later Brand and I met up to fish for Tiger Musky on my home water. It was early spring and things were already behind… Way behind! Cold water temps, freezing nights, wind rain and snow (which is now a theme for us) were in store for 3 days.

Despite the not so great conditions we both got into a some fish… I completely botched the hook set on a 100% legit topwater eat (20′ off the back of the boat), Brad’s Tootie Frooty Hang Time pulled some weight before she was lost in battle, my skirt fly R & D was boating fish and more than plenty of good laughs were had.

Unfortunately all my fish pictures are on Brad’s camera and he’s currently balls deep in musky oil. So I’m guess in fish bum/guide time I’ll have them posted sometime after freeze up. Cheers!
