    Default Parys Muddler

    A great all purpose bugger styled pattern that imitates Tilapia, possibly Tadpoles, Barb & Brooders and other species like Mosquito fish found in the Vaalriver.

    Cool flies Gerrit. Are these ones tried and tested?

    Hey Gerrit, I see you tie in your zonker strip upside down to the way most flies are tied, does that make a difference?

    Had thought on the strip being "upside down" i.e. facing up.
    All predator fish attack bait fish from directly below to level.
    So it makes perfect sense to have the grey leather strip hidden from the attacking fish as it will surely look unnatural.

    Nice flies mate -

    How are you fishing these - down and swinging across or traditional upstream and covering lies?
    Any weight in the pattern to get them down or are you fishing weighted lines.

    Can definitely see the appeal of the pattern.

    Thanks Kevin,

    Mostly upstream into lies & perpendicular towards banks and edges either up or down. As for weight the 3D versions have a 3,8mm tungsten bead built into it (0.5g) and the dumbell versions are 1g. I only fish floating lines.
