About the Mandy's Dark Muskie Freshwater Fly
Mandy's Dark Muskie is, as the name suggests a pattern tied for muskies, the American version of the English and European pike.
It is a variant of the original that was tied and created by Brian Thielicke. It has a triple rabbit strip wing, is very mobile and is full of pulsating action when retrieved, all very tempting for predatory muskie or pike.
You need to set the hooks home, so if you are fishing deep, wind down on the fish and strike twice firmly.
