It is a great looking muddler though.

Thanks for the picture Robbie. Nice fly.
There are quite a few variations called Muddler Tubes.
One I tie on Copper tubes works great in plunge pools early
in the spring. Ugly thing but gets results!
Garys Polar Bear works great on it. Thanks Gary!
There is a good story attached but latter - lol
Be careful casting it though - might give a head ache.
Have a great day tying
Paul

Gonna give this chartreuse Cossaboom muddler skater a try this summer. I like fishing ginked up muddlers for both trout and salmon so a fully dressed skater should work just as well on surface oriented summer salmon I think. May try some in natural deer hair a la a normal muddler. Maybe a Blue Charm version too. They should float like a cork and make a nice disturbance on the surface when stripped. Works on steelhead so why not salmon.

One of if not my favorite muddler patterns. Gink this bad boy up and strip it on the the surface of your favorite brown trout hole after the sun goes down and hold on. Also a great salmon fly in stained water.

Awesome muddlers Robbie and SS!

Wish i had that brown muddler by SS the other night as the sun dipped down!  A lot of missed raises in the dark :)

I have lots of these on both hooks and tubes Matt. I'll slip you a few the next time we get out. Its a deadly low light pattern for big browns. Looks like a big creek chub wounded on the surface or something.
