kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Nocentini's Attractor 2

Image

A few minor changes to the original. After a few casts, it'll probably be more of a hair-winged Muddler than a hare-hackled Stimulator; not that that's a bad thing.

A few changes to Dave Wiltshire's version; could have used a bit heavier hackle. Irish lough muddlers rock.
