The evolution of my mouse SBS
It's a bit out of my usual trout tying, but I had to try it out. Still dealing with winter-time cabin-fever.
I remember reading last year about how a trout was found with 21? mice in it's stomach!!! Gotta have my bases covered right? so here's my attempt at evolving (its only my 5th ever deer-hair mouse) the next pattern to become a trout slayer.
start with this...
end up with this bed-head nightmare
give it a haircut....
Voila!!! I think the zonker tail will look great when it gets wet swimming over lilly-pads for some LMB
the chubby middle mouse is kinda like Gus-Gus in Cinderella. (sorry, I have a 3 yr old princess)... I've seen Cinderella way too much this last year
any comments? advice? how about mouse eating trout in Ct?
