white variation of the classic muddler minnow effective fly fishing in western Maine Rangeley Fly Shop

White Muddler Minnow - Fly of the Month

   We recently added the White Muddler Minnow to the store.  It was created by Don Gapen of Minnesota in the late 1930’s.  The fly was popularized and mass produced by Bailey’s Fly Shop of Montana.  The white color is a spin-off of the original natural deer hair color.  This is a very effective pattern for Maine Brook Trout.  Every year fishermen stop in and ask for it, but I couldn’t locate white turkey feathers until recently.  This is certainly a pattern worth trying come spring.
