Mouse (for fly fishing)

with one comment

I have update my Mouse pattern, reflecting from a more natural (less sculpted) body taking in inspiration from Andreas Andersson (great youtube video available > Andersson Deer Hair Hair Mouse).

Comments:

  • The head is my fuller, reflecting my preference for Muddlers to. Now, this does increase its wind resistance, so I am looking to use a 9wt rod).
    .
  • I experimented with eyes and ears, but I after some playing, I think these features catch only fishermen.
    .
  • First time, I trimmed with razor blades and yes, I will keep doing this. Be prepared to go to the next blade before your fourth fly. I was using Japanese Feather double edge razor blades, and will continue to do so.
    .
  • I used the Veevus GSP 150 and it is strong and do recommend this for lager deer flies.  On smaller flies, I may try 100, but the 150 was awesome.
    .
  • I really like the Ahrex Predator Stinger Hook PR320.  Much stronger than the old Mustad, great shape leading to a definite recommend.
