Default Re: Mouse Fly pattern ???

After you shave the bottom make sure the fly is perfectly flat where it will be in contact with the water. I think adding some zap a gap to eat holds the deer hair together a little better. After a fish or two deer hair gets mangled. Also pay close attention to stacking it evenly on each side of the hook. It wouldn't take much for it to ride a little sideways. Not sure if it would change your pattern to much but a wider base (in contact with the water) should be more stable.
