Video: Foam Body Skunk Dry Fly

This pattern is a trout and panfish killer during the short, but sweet, northern Michigan dry fly season. A fairly simple fly to tie, this skunk has its roots in Earl Madsen’s Skunk which Madsen originated on the Au Sable system in the 1930’s. Enjoy this fly, and please, leave a few fish for the rest of us…
