Default Tying Morrish Mouse

I can't find a video of someone tying (in English) this.

Any one have a good link?

Thanks, Dave

Or maybe this: http://kent-klewein.com/georgia-fly-...g-blog/?p=3600

Here is my favorite made from Nutria fur, you can buy the fur on EBay: http://www.jackgartside.com/step_coypu_flies_cont.htm

This one is not a morish mouse but it's a pattern that has been good to me. The body rides low, the head stays out of water and the deer hair at the head pushes alot of water. I have been happy with it.

Woenstonefly: That pattern looks like Jack Gartside's "Furgler", it is indeed a very good pattern. Here is the link, scroll down the page:

The furgler could be some of the inspiration for that pattern, but the furgler does not have the deer hair head. I think that's a key part of the fly. I have fished them with and without the deer and it works a lot better with the hair. I first saw it tied by Marty Howard but I dont know the name of it

Tyler185, Yeah the body is rabbit hackled around the hook I stop about 3/8" short of the eye to spin the deer hair.

I have fished that fly on rivers some but mostly I fish it on lakes at first light. or just before it's dark.

Wovenstonefly: Thanks for the tip, I have never tried the mouse on a lake, I'll have to give it a try. Have you ever tried Nutria fur, it has a real mouse look to it if you use a pelt from an older animal as the guard hairs are really long and tan. You can buy them on EBay for around $25-30 but most of the pelts are from younger animals and don't have the nice long guard hair.
