Today we are checking out the Mini Muddler 'Tartan' tied by Steve Cullen. The Mini Muddler is as you'd expect, a mini version of the popular Muddler fly. It does share some commonalities with the muddler such as it's hackle being tied in a natural deer hair. However the head on the mini muddler as Steve explains, is tied not in Deer Hair, but in a mix of Squirrel and Rabbit. It doesn't have that bulbous head a muddler is known for, but retains it's ability to sit suspended in the water. This fly will catch both Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout, so get a few tied together and have them ready for when the going gets tough!
