Tie a muddler
Pictures: Martin Joergensen: "One evening when I was tying flies with a couple of friends, one of them, Nils, asked me to tie a muddler, just as a demo. I did. Luckily the other friend, Henning, was quick and caught these great pictures of the process."
These step-by-step pictures show you how to tie a nice muddler.
Suggestion: Mark Dysinger has been chasing smallmouth bass with the flyrod for many years, and during that time he's come across some surprisingly difficult fish. Super clear water and high fishing pressure can make these bass as fussy and easily spooked as any educated trout.
This may be the method and patterns that saves the day

Bugger!: Many flies were developed from the Woolly Bugger, German Raoul Kempkes got back to it and created a very simple pattern which is extremely durable and very easy to tie. Only a few materials are needed to tie a great pattern which is highly versatile. The perfect Woolly Bugger!

This is my most recent imitation of the river shiner, probably the most prevalent baitfish in the area. I took the pattern from a saltwater fly tied by Mike Martinek at a United Fly Tyers´ meeting and adjusted the color scheme. The best color so far has been olive over white, but I'm tying plenty of gray/white and violet/white.
