    Default Lynchís white bellied mouse

    It looks interesting to tie and fish. Seems easy to tie, but Iím stumped on the underbody. I canít locate anything online other than a video with no words and bad music, but it seems to have an underbody of foam. Or is it something else?
    Insights are welcome.

    Joey, I see what you mean about the music. In watching a couple of the videos my best guess for the under body is white rabbit zonker strips. Possibly long white schlappen feathers would work as well.

    Yeah. I see that the body is a fur of some kind. But it looks like some of the videos show a foam strip under that for flotation. But itís tied down tight, seeming to crush the foam. That would kill flotation Iíd assumed. Iíll try a few and see how it goes.

    Yup, crushed foam = no floatation, could be just for filler?

    Ok. Iíve checked a few other annoying videos and seems that the underbody is optional. So Iíll wrap some with and some without and see how it all works out.

    It's an articulate fly. But the pattern is there.

    Yep. One of the annoying videos I was describing.
    Just an observation that the articulated mouse pattern is not a new concept. The No-body Muddler tied and fished by Del Canty on Flaming Gorge in the 1970ís is essentially a prototype for the White-bellied mouse.
    Hereís the No-body.

    And hereís the White-bellied

    Foam replaced deer hair and rabbit replaced badger. Otherwise similar design, identical concept and equal results on monster browns as demonstrated by Tommy Lynch on the Arkansas lunkers!

    Joey, try one crushed, and one floaty......
    I like foam in fore body, but I also tie into tail for a different action....

    The bar isn't set by the fish we catch, but by the one's we don't.

    I tied a couple without any underbody to see how those work. If it sinks or doesnít work too well, Iíll mess around with some underbody materials.
