Funky Muddler

The Funky muddler is not a new style of fly, its based on the same idea as the kinky muddler, but is tied with Funky Fibre/EP fibre instead of kinky fibre.
Using bunches of Funky fibres tied in an "X" then folded back on its self you will be able to "stack" the fibre and trim them with a sharp pair of scissors into any 3D shaped fish head.
This stacking of synthetic hair is a great alternative way to add bulk but not weight.
With the range of colours out there you can pretty much intimate any bait fish that swims.
Good luck with the Tying!

Material list
Gills: red Funky fibre
