Default Re: Austin Clark's Brown Muddler

With saltwater streamers, a long collar like that protects long tails from conflicting currents. Less fouling that way.

My "new" favorite muddler variation is the Kennebago Muddler
Muddler head in the front... Hornberg wing in the rear

That fly would be a serious contender for low water summer run Steelhead fishing. Fish it dry or fish it wet .....

Fred, that's exactly how it's used for atlantics, too.

The key is the long deer hair; it pulses nicely in the water.
