The Muddler Minnow fly pattern is adapted in this video for steelhead fly fishing. This pattern can be fished on the surface or “skated” or subsurface swung down and across. While the fly has a nice “spun” head Tony Torrence demonstrates how to clump and trim the muddler head without truly spinning the hair.
