    I tried my hand at tying Gerrit's version of the Largie Muddler.

    My approach was to tie in a zonker tail and complete the head with the v-style kinky muddler technique.

    Faults:
    1) Nose / tie-off, I get way too carried away with the nose so to speak, these things look like they dronk, but at the same time, it will serve as a nice trigger.
    2) I need to trim the belly a bit more and expose the hook a bit more.

    Other than that, I quite happy with these...I dubbed them the "Maraba Minnow"...

    As per Gerrits Largie Muddler and Chris van Der Posts weed gaurd technique Korrie, the beads aid in sinking and keeping the head nose down on the twitch retrieve....

    Those flies look really nice.

    How long do you take to tie one
