    As for a name...Steak-n-Taters! Looks like the meat & potato's to me

    That sounds real good to me!

    First attemp at a muddlers minnow.
    And working with deer hair.
    Size4
    Pretty pleased, but lots of room for improvement. (Especially timewise).

    Things I learned about muddlers:

    1) Sparse is very hard to learn.
    2) The difference between a muddler and a deerhair popper is how densely the head is packed.
    3) Trimming the bottom of the head to a tight "V" and mild Dahlberg diver shaped head help get the fly down and ride well in the water.
    4) Kevlar thread for hair spinning in pretty essential.
    5) It is faster an easier to work several small clumps of deer hair rather than trying to do the whole thing in 1 or 2 large clumps
    6) Trying to work the deerhair from the center so you clip off the really hollow part of the hairs help the fly be less buoyant
    7) you can effectively weight muddlers by with spiral wraps of lead wire around the shank covered up with woven mylar tubing.
    8) Fish them hard and fish them often - sometimes the best presentation is "Keep Away" Let the fish sort of see the fly and then try to strip it back so the fish can't get it. Trout swim a lot faster than I can strip in line.
    I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.

    Fly is under water, barb stuck in some felt. George Grant influence...underbody is cream topped with a orange hen pheasant body feather slimmed down by pulling a lacquered feather through the fingers , over-wrapped with a 1/8 " strip of taupe organza. The thorax feather is natural hen pheasant drawn into position and followed with a dyed orange pheasant back feather for a collar.
    Western Wet......





    This ones not underwater...I pushed it a bit with a few changes. Maybe it needs a tail ?

    Lord, does it come with its own space ship? That thing is frightening. Very pretty, but man, I've never seen something so iridescent. Do you have a recipe?
    Thanks.
