Sunday February 27, 12:00PM  Room A – Introduction to Fly Fishing for Musky

This seminar will provide an overview for targeting and catching Wisconsin’s state fish, the mighty muskellunge, on a fly rod. This is not as crazy as it seems. Anglers have been catching musky on fly fishing gear for several decades. Over the last few years the amount of gear and tactics have grown tremendously. We will cover the basics in terms of how and why you target muskies on the fly!
Dan Donovan is the owner and operator of Musky Fool Fly Fishing Co, the original musky fly shop, based in Madison, WI. Prior to starting Musky Fool, Dan was an executive for technology startups. Dan and his wife, Jenn, started Musky Fool because they saw opportunities in the fly fishing industry that they are both deeply passionate about. As such, Musky Fool came about as a musky-focused fly shop, in the capital city of one of the greatest fishing states in the country, with the purpose of providing anglers with the gear they need while investing 5% of the profits directly into our country’s musky fisheries.
