  3. O/P Mini Muddler (version 2) Swapped out the orange Uni-Stretch for opal tinsel so I didn’t have to change the name. hook – WFC Model 6 #8 thread - UTC 140 black rib - large tinsel opal body - peacock herl wing- Amherst pheasant crest head - deer hair Regards, Scott

  5. I use one of those battery-powered cocktail mixers ($6.00); cut the end off one of the attachment ends, drill a hole, cut the eye off a modified hook (used a Mustad 34011, I think) and epoxy it in the hole. If you want to change the direction, just flip the batteries and it rotates in the opposite direction. Regards, Scott

  7. Tiltwing Purple Haze Pronghorn wing proved to be finer than any deer belly hair I have, and much easier to work with than the calftail version I tried a while back. hook - WFC Model 3 #12 thread - MFC 6/0 purple tail - moose body hair rib - Flashabou Mirage opal abdomen - dubbing purple wing - pronghorn white hackle - grizzly/brown Regards, Scott
  8. BRF’s Summer Stone Tied here skwala-ish; it would work better in motor-oil colors but the olives were on the top of the travel kit and I am inherently lazy. Here’s the video. Swapped out the polypro indicator for another petrochemical byproduct and used some different leggings, neither of which the fish will care about at all hook - Dai Riki 300 #8 thread - UTC 140 olive egg sac - Congo Hair black body - dubbing olive wing - deer hair dyed olive head - 2mm foam olive legs - medium rubber dun indicator - 1mm foam orange Regards, Scott

  10. EHC Jingler 5 days on the road; sequestered in my mountain redoubt under quarantine, so I have to break the adhesions and get the synovial fluids moving again.

  11. Bullethead Carnage Hopper The foamheads were a favor to a friend, but I actually find a standard bullethead a lot easier to tie, although not as durable. hook - WFC Model 28 #10 thread - UTC 140 fluoro pink core - 8lb mono underbody - elk hair body - 1mm foam pink wing/head - deer hair legs - medium rubber grey indicator - 1mm foam orange Regards, Scott
