Black Widow Muddler

Way back when I started flyfishing for seatrout in saltwater on the Danish coast... few people did that. There weren't many fly patterns developed for this new fishing. I did what felt natural and used the flies I had tied for river fishing. One of the most successful was an all-black Muddler. On some spring evenings this one would outfish most other patterns. It has changed a slightly over the years - but it is still a deadly fly for trout in freshwater as well as the salt. I primarily use this fly early and late in the day, for night fishing and fishing on dark days. I feel that the blue sparkle in the dubbing adds a cool effect in the dim light.

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.
