“Pursuing Esox: Muskie, Pike, and Chain Pickerel on The Fly”

I’m proud to announce that The Uncommon Angler, in collaboration with Austin Green Photography, has begun filming “Pursuing Esox: Muskie, Pike, and Chain Pickerel on The Fly.” We would like to thank The Orvis Fly Fishing Blog, 3-TAND Fly Reels, Scientific Anglers, and all of the individual fishermen who have reached out to help make this film a possibility! We still have over a years worth of filming to go, but we are so excited to be well underway! Here is a small gallery of images from our filming so far!

  1. Walleye on a fly?? Unreal! I’ve heard of this only one time before, and the guys were actually targeting them on the flyrod. There was a place where apparently the ‘eyes were hitting frogs in the shallows so they were able to get them on deer hair bugs, etc. Seems a little strange for me! Pike on the fly rod is a GREAT thing! Glad to hear you’re enjoying it!

    • It was a total blast! That walleye clobbered my fly and held to the bottom. I thought the fish was actually a rock and when I finally pulled her in, the fly was hooked in the lower lip from the inside out–meaning it had that whole eight inch fly in its mouth before I tugged! Im having a blast catching all things Esox!
