    Default DEEP WATER MUDDLER - Fly of the week - February 28, 2011

    DEEP WATER MUDDLER

    I first tied this fly up for fishing some stocked ponds close to where I was living during the winter season. It?s a knock-off of another fly I?d seen somewhere. The materials are a little different than the original, and I?m not sure what it was called. I?ve had a lot of success fishing this fly in still waters with a sink tip line, as well as a floating line. Trout, walleye, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, crappie, and northern pike seem to enjoy eating it as much as I like fishing it. I haven?t fished it in moving water much, but what little I have, has been pretty successful.

    I like your fly, Hugo. Is that Bass pro stuff similar to estaz?

    It is very similar. I tried several different brands, they were all close, but not quite the same. They all caught fish, but the bass pro stuff just seemed to have that little extra that the other brands I've tried don't. As you can see, the estaz I have is quiet a bit darker than the bass pro brand (on the right). I really prefer the more olive color, and the fish around here seem to as well, lol. It did work though.
    TT.
