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].
[Posted comment on the video by Dan Small about the fly in the video]
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!
