Ever wonder which fish is at the top of the food chain? In the James River, the muskellunge (Esox masquinongy, aka muskie or musky) is king. Often called “the fish of 10,000 casts,” this elusive predator is notoriously difficult to catch—but it can be done with the right tactics and expertise.

Our guide, Davis Stanley, has been hunting muskie for years. Through his successes and failures on the river, he’s developed a keen understanding of this predator’s unique behavior. As a result, Davis has been a part of over two dozen musky landed in his fishing career! Davis knows musky fishing on the James well, ties winning flies which attract the big predators, and holds the key to helping you catch your own muskie on the fly.

The cooler months are the best for muskie fishing, so guided trips with Davis will start in the fall and continue into the spring. This fish is very elusive, so be prepared for anything in the day of fishing.  That's big-fish-hunting jargon for "we cannot guarantee you will catch a muskie, but your guide will sure try; and if you put in enough trips with him, sooner or later you will eventually catch this carnivour and the guided experience will be all the more rewarding." Go with the attitude of learning and enjoying the pursuit, trying to get a chase and hopefully a hit, and you do have a chance of landing one.  Regardless of how your day goes, you’ll enjoy Davis’s informative, friendly, and engaging style, and you’ll come away from the trip a better fisherman or fisherlady.

If you are ready to take the “big fish gamble,” give us a call to book a day or two with Davis on the James—it could yield the fish of a lifetime!

PETA friends and clients don't worry--that's our guide Robert's blood!
