AH-Muddler

This is a great fly for big brownies!
Fish it in the evening and night in quite large sizes. This one is about 4" long and tied with a wide profile.
The overwing is tied with bucktail and the underwing is all Angelhair.
I tie the overwing with the stiff bucktail instead of softer materials because I want it to keep it's profile even in the slow water.
This one is a killer!
Sincerely, Tobias

Thank you Chase
I use Pro Junglecock HD. It's not like the original but it works. It has delaminated a couple of times but otherwise ok...
I guess it's more ethical than using the real stuff.

Would do great as a surface wake pattern in the dead of night for the seatrout!

Lovely tie

Thank you everyone!

Thank's for all kind words!
I fish it with a Versitip and clear intermediate tip to keep the line really stealthy. You can't be to careful when it comes to big browns

If you tie it like me with bucktail it can be a little tricky to get the right taper and width. My tip is to build the wing bit by bit with small bunches of hair.

I'm flattered that some of you are thinking about tying this fly
(It would be very interesting to see your versions of it)

I must point out that the original pattern of the AH-tube is not mine. This is just my tweak of it...

Sincerely, Tobias

Well tied, if i could have only one fly for steelhead in all it's variations, the mudler is easily the one...

So how is using an artificial for one component make it more ethical? Pretty sure a deer still died for a good part of that fly.
Nice tie, though!

doubt the deer died for the fly, maybe the meat though.

I'm not getting into a discussion about this because I'm just not educated enough in the subject.
As I understand it though, the Jungelcock is an endangered species and here in Europe it's only one farm in England that is licenced to farm them. There are a lot of jc material circulating on the market that is not legal.
Deer is not an endangered species as far as I know...

Just my two cents...
