Mini Mr Hanky

The Mini Mr Hanky is a great mouse pattern for big Alaskan Rainbows and large Carnivorous Brown Trout! The Mini Mr Hanky is a lifelike mouse pattern that fishes incredibly well (way better than it looks dry)!! In this video I am tying the "Mini" version, but there is a full size version that uses rabbit instead of the pine squirrel. Both are equally effective, but the Mini is very popular here in the lower 48. The Mini Mr Hanky is easy to fish, just quarter it down and across and "walk" (or wake) the fly slowly to the other bank!!

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.
