It is a painful undertaking trying to fly fish for muskies. The stories are all the same: tough fishing, glimmers of hope, desperation, hopelessness, defeat and then a moment of payoff. But that moment of payoff is huge. This video from field and stream is a great example of the addiction and the agony that goes into throwing huge flies for the muskellunge. If the “tug is the drug” then muskie fishing with a fly is definitely “chasing the dragon,” and I need one of those battle horns.
