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.

Tying one on a standard shank hook is not as much of a challenge as the extended body version, but they do go faster; fish won’t care one way or another.

Michigan Coffin Fly

Found a section of nice, white, short-tipped hair on a piece of pronghorn hide that’s not as coarse as the deer belly hair I have. Won’t be near any eastern green drake spinner falls so I’ll try them as attractors.

Although the Congo Hair wing version is an easier tie, those averse to petrochemical products can try this ungulate winged one.

Mick’s Bighorn Muddler

A friend of mine gave me this streamer he’d had in his tackle box for years.

Image


He called it a Bighorn Special; the one’s I’d seen always had a wrapped hackle head, so we’ll call this a Muddler instead. Weight is optional.
