bowfin on fly

I've been goin up to minnesota's ottertail county to fish. I have always had tremendous fun catching big bowfin/dogfish in the eight pound class on crappie spinning gear right next to docks. They eat anything in their path. They are big, all muscle, and almost always jump immediatly after being hooked. I was planning to see if I could catch them on size 8 streamers with an eight pound leader on a 7 weight rod. Does any know anything about fly fishing for these brutes?
