Have fun with this "guide style" pattern!

Resources for the "Mop Fly" material include:

Mop Fly...

We first saw the Mop Fly at a Disabled Veteran fly fishing outing. It was hot, being used to catch many trout. I'm sure more will be tied at the weekly fly tying gathering of vets. Simple to tie, with lots of room for creativity. Cool fly!
