Maybe they were just looking for the pot of gold.

Silver, a couple of years ago we had a massive "vole" hatch at Silver Creek () and I'm sure at least one of these pictures is from that period of time. Fish love mice when they are available - especially big browns.

Kelly,

Here's a story about those Silver Creek fish eating voles. The article could have used your photos!

Thank God I didn't see this 'til after I just finished dinner!

A buddy of mine was a guide up in Alaska this summer and would catch the bows swinging a mouse pattern on the surface.

Thanks for the link. Cool.

BTW, compare the pics of your voles and those in the article (with short tails) to pics of the OP (longer tails; mice).

I sent Gary the article about the shrew eating trout in Alaska and he wrote back that he has used a brown Strip Leech pattern to catch trout in Alaska. It's an easy pattern to tie.

Incidentally I caught my very first fly fishing trout using the Borger Strip Leech on the Firehole River in Yellowstone Park.

Here's Gary's version:

TieTalk: How to Tie a Strip Leech | Field & Stream

Here's a video of the Alaskan Guide version. Use the right color fur strip:
