April Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

Make-Do Muddler (Michigan body)





hook - WFC. Model 6 #8
thread - Uni 6/0 camel 
underbody/shuck - Congo Hair white
body - deer hair 
wing - Congo Hair white
shoulder - sharptail grouse
head/collar - deer hair

Hadn’t planned on being in the desert southwest for more than a few days (3 weeks and counting) so ending up bringing a basic tying kit for mostly tailwater nymphs/scuds/sowbugs, which, with a fractured wrist, I’m probably not going to get much use of now. The only ungulate hair I have is a piece I just bought on EBay which, although way too skinny/tippy for the smaller flies I intended it for, worked well enough on this size iron.  Don’t know how the Congo Hair slipped in my bag but I was happy to see it.
