Dont want to be a dick, but the mouse is actually Pat Cohen's mouse. Andreas just made a video of it.

 

Here is a diver from last night.

Retro.... do mayflies come in black? I've never seen one. White or yellow.... never black.

Leptophlebia or black quill. I'm in Massachusetts and run into them once ina while.

Im sure Andreas has been tying up mouse patterns before Pat Cohen started tying.... but yeah Pat Cohen has put spinning deer up in the front light.

 

And yes that is Andreas version. Now mine because I changed the tail out.

 

All good though, it's about tying flies and having fun!!

It's pretty well documented that Pat did it first. Andreas' video was almost identical to Pat's DVD that has been out for a long time. Both great tyers.

Maybe right cheech, all i am saying is Andreas has been tying for a little while before Cohen. Has he only been tying for a few years now? Maybe Andreas has tied a mouse pattern before....and has fine tuned it over time? Anyways they both have great skills....

Yep, Andreas has been tying longer, but his youtube video is basically word for word of pats DVD.

I'm pretty sure the deer hair mouse had been done before both of them did it...who cares? Both are great tyers, and the mouse above is pretty darn good. Leave it at that.
