Muddler Mountain…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A couple of times a year I go fishing in the mountains. I normally practise c & r, but on these trips I take one or two fish a day for dinner. There is nothing quite like fresh trout from a high altitude lake. The trout in these waters are used to a short season and smaller fish is constantly on the menu. It is not very often I fish streamers. When I do it is usually some kind of Muddler Minnow. The flies pictured here are by no means tied for display. These are purely meant to catch fish…I do not care about the way the wing looks. I normally twist the wing when the fly is finished. When I have caught enough for dinner it is time to turn the flies barbless and continue fishing.
