#285 Muddler Featherwing - Dave Lomasney #285 Muddler Feather-wing - Dave Lomasney


Tied by: Dave Lomasney
Originated by: Don Gapen

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek 8xl #2
Thread: Black 6/0
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Wing: 2 olive hackles flanked by black hackle
Head: Deer hair spun and clipped to shape

Notes: Don Gapen created the Muddler Minnow pattern for chasing Ontario's legendary coaster brook trout, a potamodromous, slow growing large strain of brookies. The pattern was created to mimic the Cockatush minnow, a type of sculpin which inhabit the stream beds of the Nipigon watershed. The moniker "Muddler", comes from a local endearment given to the minnows in Wisconsin. The defining feature of the pattern is the head, and it has been passed along into the listings for hundreds of new variations. Dave has kept things simple keeping the streamer slender. The black and olive wing combine to an alluring dark olive bound to entice the coasters on the hunt.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
