Now That's A Fly!

At the recent Huron River (MI) Fly Tyer's Symposium, Capt. Brian Mezaros of Great Lakes Fly Fishing tied up a few patterns for late-season musky fishing on Lake St. Clair. Using the quarter for size comparison, you can see that Capt. B's "Imperchinator" is a giant pattern. By tieing it on a tube, hook size and length does not limit the size of the fly. It is also tied with non-water absorbing materials, so it picks up minimal water weight and stays easier to cast.

looks like it could be adapted to saltwater too.

Nice looking fly. I got to play with some of Charlie Bisharat's prototype flies up in Hayward while muskie fishing. I think giant tube flies are going to become more and more popular. You don't end up with either a hook that's in the "head" of the fly or a super long-shanked hook. We all know pike and muskies love to roll and with a short stinger hook in a tube the hook shouldn't torque out as easily.
