Default A Kinky Muddler

Tying flies is all very well BUT it is completely pointless unless you are going to fish them or have them fished!


Last night I decided to tie up a pattern I'd seen on another US based forum - it is by a talented tyer called Johnny King and the fly is called a Kinky Muddler... I had a little play and this is a very imperfect first attempt at this tie... I used white for the underside and the top wing a combination of shrimp, pink and black marker pen with a little blue flash... as I say it was a play... craft eyes were bonded in place.

So this morning I woke to a hard frost and decided a trip to the trout fishery was not on! Too cold... so I went for a mooch nearer home... To cut a long story short I had a follow and then a boil from a bigger fish behind the fly and then a cast that resulted in this jack... nice to have the string pulled.

Nice fly. You must be in Europe. Have you noticed the Pike where you are seem to have the dots in the pattern, more in rows forming somewhat verticle bars? Something North American Pike don't very often do. Looking at pictures from Europe, it seems to be pretty common, occuring in most of the ones I've seen. By the way, where are you Offshore?

I have seen Jonny's works and he has a lot of talent and a great imagination. I too have tied a few of these and the came out looking pretty good. These are messy flies to tie and i have not fished them yet but as soon as the ice is gone i will try them out. Nice fish!! Nice tie!!
