I have always wanted to try to catch a muskie on my fly tackle. I have a 9' 10 weight rod and not quite sure of what type of fly to use. I would be greafull for any suggestions

Hi A,
As a general rule, I use 2/0-3/0 furstrip divers on sinking lines in the early season for sight fishing. (sometimes also poppers and divers on the surface (and neutral or sinking streamers) w/floating lines also during the "early" period.
Later switch to mega divers fished both with floating and sinking lines, and blind casting the same places you'd fish lures.
