Great fly -
By: TroutTwo from New York
Fished after a heavy rain. Stripped across the river. 15 browns. Browns were striking as the minnow broke the surface and also on the retrieve. Must have had another dozen strikes. As I left the stream the fly had only minor damage. Great quality.

This is a great especially in the early season. I often put a small spit on it and pull it across the current with good results. You can also use this at the river for bass; excellent fly that everyone should have.

This minnow imitation has done well for sunfish on my local lake. Would recommend.

Nice tight flies, they don't twist on the hook. I purchased in the winter to fill my fly box and have yet to try these particular flies. Muddler Minnows are a go to fly for me when all else fails and this is an excellent quality specimen. Good Value.
Top quality fish catcher -
I have been fishing for a couple of years now and am always excited to get new Orvis flies. The muddler minnow, just like many other flies from Orvis is very durable even through many fish being caught and it looks great in a new fly box

Early in the season I drift a muddler through a classic wet-fly swing and have tons of success on every sort of trout, including Steelhead. I find the big ones hit when I'm stripping it in - fast - at the end of the drift. I've also caught BIG smallmouth and largemouth on this fly, as well as the occasional pike. Also a good double for a hopper later in the year.
Good for Bass and Bluegill -

The Muddler Minnow is a great fly for trout. However, I have had even better luck using it for bass and bluegill. Because of the deer hair head, you can fish it unweighted with floatant on the surface as you would a popper. Or without floatant just beneath the surface. Moreover, you can add weight to the line or the fly and fish it deeper. It catches fish all of these ways.
