Big flies. Big fish.

Been using big, jointed 6 inch Clousers for my striper fishing, but I don't like the way they look in the water. At that length, a Clouser appears almost eel-like when the water slims it down.  I wanted a pattern with a broader profile in the water to better match the baitfish here. Enter Cowan's Magnum Baitfish, a fly designed by Henry Cowan, who is somewhat of a legend around these parts when it comes to striper fishing. Took one for a test drive this morning. Turned out ok.

I can't imagine landing a strip like that on the fly rod. What weight rod are you using with those streamers to land a fish like that? Awesome catch!!!

Ty said...

Thanks Bill! Those big stripers are a lot of fun. I use a 9 wt. for them.

John Montana said...

Awesome! I am jealous.

Anything that eats a 6" fly is totally awesome! Is that a big river you are fishing or some kind of pass?

Ty said...

That's ok John. I've been jealous all year about all of those friggin' monster carp you've been catching. And don't even get me started on your Alaska trip.

They are pretty awesome fish, McTage. Absolute beasts. That's the Tennessee river and it is pretty big. About 65,000 cfs rolling through there right now.

An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic.
