    Excellent. That muddler would fish excellent swinging in the riffle water.

    On the East Coast, the Muddler minnow is a fairly popular Atlantic Salmon fly. I believe this version is worth a try as well. I would tie it using slightly
    different steps but the result would be quite similar. Here, in Nfld.(Canada)
    local moose hair is very popular as a wing material on Salmon flies.
    I think I will tie a moose hair variation of your pattern as well using your basic design. Might be worth a try for steelhead as well?
