Mop Grub

Recommended Posts

Mop flies get a bad rap. They are thought of as too simple, or "cheating" by some. However I think there are ways to make simple and effective mop flies that aren't what I would call cheating. This mop grub fly is very easy to tie, yet its not much different than some other flies using wrapped chenille that Ive seen. However I think the mop actually works better and is easier to tie on. To fish small creeks for sunfish, there probably isn't a better style fly, at least the trip I took. Being simple and quick to tie, it won't hurt too bad if you snag on a branch and loose one because you can tie dozens of them in an hour on the vice.
