This week, we (Garrick, actually) decided to feature a fly that’s got a reputation for being rather difficult to tie, but can be used to imitate everything from a sculpin to a grasshopper, depending on how you fish it. The Muddler Minnow has a great materials list and takes some extra techniques not often employed. Also, as you can see from the video below, it can be a lot of fun to tie.

As before, all video credit here goes to Tim Flagler at Tightlines Productions.

Tight lines!
