The Muddler Minnow is a classic streamer pattern…but this is not a streamer! While you may know the Muddler as as a baitfish imitation; fishing a Dry Muddler is a whole different ball game. When caddis, stones, and hoppers are on the water ; tie one of these on…and whatever you do, don’t dead drift it. Twitch it, pop it, swing it, hop it…whatever; just give it some action. Watch fish move for this fly.
For us, this fly is a classic as the Dry Muddler accounted for Durangler’s owner Tom Knopick’s win of the 1987 Jackson Hole One Fly Contest. Check it out at here!
