Fish like to play with those... all have been proven last season except the green butt.

Call 'em whatever you want, but not muddlers. Naming patterns is not really my thing...

"all natural elitist non muddler fly"

Naw. I got nothin'.

They are muddlers. If it has a deerhair collar and head its a muddler.

Nope. No turkey and a proper muddler must include turkey.

Therefore, logically the pain of muddlerdom is avoided or, in the least, minimized.

Its me, Mitch.

Somehow I got lured onto that forum years ago by a Welshman I know and sometimes fish with. Im not sure how I was tricked into running that 'contest', but I was. Its fun, you should participate. Tie some British-style shrimp/hairwing flies (because thats all thatll ever win).
