November Fly of the Month
The Muddler Minnow is a perenial favorite streamer which most of us carry in our fly box. It was developed years ago by Minnesota tier Don Gapen to imitate sculpins, a favorite trout prey, which are found in streams across the country. When greased the Muddler also serves as a hopper. Tim Flagler's video which accompanies the tying instructions demonstrates some steps that simplify the tying of this fly.
At most general meetings we feature a "fly of the month" and everyone is encouraged to participate. By going to the page entitled "Flies and Fly Tying" you will find a recipe for the fly including any special tying instructions. Bring in at least two and you will receive a raffle ticket for each fly. Those who have not tied a fly for the raffle can purchase tickets for a dollar a piece. The winning ticket gets half of all the flies submitted while the other half is retained by the chapter.
