Heading out today as part of a steelhead order. These muddle rhead leeches just push so much water under the surface.....definitely a solid choice for dredging down around the rocks to agitate every steelhead in the hole!

Love that top one. Muddler head will liven up the already live Wabbit! Man looks good. You have what looks to be a hair composite loop behind it?
Nice

Thanks Loren, I appreciate the kind words.

No composite loop though. I make a ball of dubbing, then use some nice Pheasant Hackle (could use Schlappen or whateve tickles your fancy though!) then I make an angel hair ‘shroud’ around it, and add a few pieces of Amherst on top to even provide more lift for wing.

I should tidy it up a bit so it doesn’t look so composite loopy!!

I like not using comp loops for various reasons, one being less material and more control. But, another reason is I like to make the top of the angel hair against the pheasant longer and reverse tied to begin to get a tapered wing before laying in the actual wing......not sure if that makes sense
