Hook Shots: Muskie Fly Dreaming (Again)

Fishing Episode 8, Season 8 In this final episode of 2016, the crew revisits their buddy Robert Hawkins of Bob Mitchell's Fly Shop in Saint Paul…

Muskie fly lightning struck once on "Hook Shots" three years ago. That strike, of course, happened at the end of four gut-wrenchingly stressful days of follows and flashes in Minnesota with zero connections. It was ultimately a miracle catch, and host Joe Cermele swore it never needed to be repeated on camera. But time has a way of helping you forget the sore shoulders, aching backs, and hours of "what-if" worry. You only remember the glory, so when his good friend Tim Romano said he wanted to take a crack at one of these monsters on fly, round 2 began.

In this final episode of 2016, the crew revisits their buddy Robert Hawkins of Bob Mitchell's Fly Shop in Saint Paul. Since round 1 in 2013, Hawkins has come a long way in the muskie world, thanks in no small part to the 57-inch fly world-record 'skie he bested in November 2015. The team is solid, the scene is set, the steel leaders are crimped. Only one question remains: Will the muskie gods give "Hook Shots" the repeat victory?
