This is a beautiful step-by-step created by Alyssa Halls of Owl Creek Flies. Owl Creek Flies are Neil Strickland and Alyssa Halls, fly tyers and guides in Wyoming. Look’em up!

This is an articulated mouse pattern. The rear hook holds the tail – pink marabou and copper flash. A single plastic bead rides the mono attaching the tail to a body of natural rabbit fur, foam and rubber legs. Strip, twitch and pop – soak it with floatant and let it gurgle.

    Any chance of posting a video or link to one on YouTube perhaps? The instructions look well illustrated but a video may be helpful especially to a novice. I look forward to fishing these in the spring for largemouth in Virginia!

    Thanks,

      Sorry Stephen, this is the only step by step of this pattern that exists right now. If one comes along, I’ll be sure to post it.

      Thanks,

    I like this fly, and look forward to using it on the PM next year.

  3. I love the illustrations! Art as instruction/presentation. Used to be an important part of our tradition. Still practiced in Skandinavia, where they appreciate, & electronic media is not the be-all end-all. Your presentation keeps us in touch with craft beyond you-tube media, in my view that is better.
    Appreciate the time put into crafting this. Thanks for keeping something good going.
