    One half Musk Rat skin is about to become history
    It's not in the catching, it's in the learning something new.

    Hi Herman

    Visit the Fly Tying Sequence Videos website, then watch the "Casual Dress" fly tying video by Byron Linsell. In this video he ties a real buggy fly using muskrat hair I gave him some time ago. He has fished this fly and swears that it is a most productive fly. If I remember correctly, he mentioned that Mike Newby created or was involve in designing this fly. Muskrat is a popular tying material in the US and it might be worthwhile asking some questions on one of the US forums.

    It is a killer fly, fished deep with a varied retrieve. Try it slow (figure of eight), or fast strips.

    Quick correction - To avoid any confusion about this pattern. I learnt about the fly from Mike, he isn't the creator. I know that Mike received the fly via someone else. I saw it in action and then whipped a few up and had enormous success with them.

    From my link below the it seems that the creator was E.H. Rosborough.

    Here is a link to the recipe that I used
