A friend from Colorado came to visit and was interested in a fishing trip. We hired Mike Sturza from Lost Creek Fly Shop in Onalaska to take us out for the day on Mayfield Lake. We threw 8” flies all day long with an 11 wt Loomis rod. As luck would have it, my friend hooked and landed a 36” Muskie at the first stop of the day. The fish followed the fly and opened its mouth several times before finally eating the fly right in front of the boat. We had lots of Muskies follow the fly back to the boat during the day but only one more that actually grabbed the fly. That one came up out of the weedbed and grabbed it but didn’t hook up.
