The Thief

Recommended Posts

Well, I can't believe there wasn't an answer to this one. The Thief is certainly a muddler variant - the only difference is that you use a black chenille head instead of spun deer hair. It was created by Dan Gapen, Don Gapen's son (DG created the muddler). As I recall, use a dark mottled turky tail, gold tinsel body, dark turkey over squirrel for a wing and a big head of black chenille.


I would think that you could do just fine using a very dark cactus chenille, also.
