Mighty mouse :)

Post by ibookje » Tue Dec 03, 2019 7:30 pm

Tied a deer hair mouse for a someone.
Surely not a 'fly' to be fished.
A few times a year I tie at fly fishing shows. When people ask me what I catch with my mice I tell them women and kids :)

That is a beautifully tied mouse pattern – I really like the orange hotspot that you have as well! I’m sure that would catch big brown trout at night in my neck of the woods.

In fact, I would pay you to tie a couple of those for me!!!

"Here I come to save the day.......!"

nice clean work. Makes me think of Ralphie Graves and his shrew...I loved to antagonize him by calling it a rat...

Thank you everyone :)
Yeah these mice are fun but time consuming to tie.
Usually takes 1 to 1.5 hours. Sometimes even longer.

For fishing I'd use less well defined cuts but just a profile of a mouse, no ears, whiskers or eyes.

So you're saying "fishing flies", not mountable ties, like you posted here.... :D
