In this video Dan is casting a couple of his brother, Mike Small’s, Big MUSKIE Flies – at the 2011 Muskie Expo, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The first fly is the, SlideWinder [a near-surface fly, w/ a back-and-forth, walking-the-dog action]. The second fly is the HawgFrog [surface fly, w/ a lot of hackle on rubber disk head w/eyes; a popping fly].
Dan Small recently showed off the attraction quality of his brother’s muskie flies at the Wisconsin Muskie Expo. Using the huge mega-gallon tank at the expo, Dan cast and retrieved one of his brother Mike’s new Muskie Fly patterns. The action was caught on video by Muskie Central senior editor, Steve Worrall
Watch the video and see this impressive fly pattern do its thing.
“That is one ‘super fishy fly’. Just watching this short clip, I can’t image a muskie fly-fisherman wouldn’t be drooling for at least a dozen of them!” Les Booth, Ofieldstream Outdoor Journal

The fly is a Vampire, tied by my brother Mike Small. Steve Herbeck of Andy Myers Lodge bought this fly right off my rod last year at a show. Yesterday he showed me photos of three fish a client caught on it: 53″, 49″ and 47″. And the best part is he still has the fly!
