On youtube check out "the new fly fisher Newfoundland" one of the shows they are fishing big brookies on a mouse fly during the day and wow they are hitting them hard.

I have not fished a mouse pattern, but you might want to check out the trailer for "Once in a Blue Moon" it's a film that was on The Fly Fishing film tour and its about fishing the pattern in New Zealand. It's a cool trailer.

We fished mouse patterns when I lived in Bozeman. There was little technique involved. A cast to the bank, a twitch, and a plop into the water. We caught a good number of browns that were waiting in cutbanks and below overhangs.Strikes could sometimes be pretty violent. Best time for us was just after dusk.
Big fast moving water will grab a deer hair mouse and as it does, you get a second chance at a strike. No indicator required ! There is no doubt there is a fish on, and you're in for a fight.
Try it, you'll like it !

Thanks for all the stories and info, I am definitely going to put a couple mice in my fly box. I'm thinking that autumn may be the perfect time to give this a try with the browns getting particularly aggressive.

Great video, long bow. All I can say is wow, PowerBall. have you been huntin yet?

Do you fish mice patterns?
Here's a link to a post from a while back about big Colorado browns I used to catch in still water on the Eagle River. It was a pretty funny situation, and I still ride Doug about it ocassionally.

Generally speaking, the large browns there didn't start getting active until at least 2 hours after dark - long after the small ones had all gone to bed.

Joni posted a pic of a bomber that can be found with a search "Joni Bomber"

Mice patterns are some of my favorite to fish. I just hope you don't mind staying up all night. Mice and hoppers are probably two of the most effective ways to get trophy browns to slam top water.
