Muddler Minnow
The original Sculpin pattern is the Muddler Minnow. It was invented by Don Gapen, around 1950 to catch brook trout from the Nippigon River system. Since then the versatile Muddler has been used to catch many different species of game fish under a wide range of circumstances. It is one of the have-to-have flies for every collection.

About Marabou Muddler Minnows
Another Sculpin pattern, which has been popular over the years, is the Marabou Muddler. It has been used to capture all species of trout in both lakes and streams and is a popular steelhead fly. It incorporates marabou in the wing for a life-like shimmery swimming action. Our patterns are weighted but must be fully saturated with water before they will sink. The Marabou Muddler is also a very productive fly for both large and small mouth bass.


 

Marabou Muddler Minnow, Black
Black is a very productive color for steelhead and trout in rivers. A Black Marabou Muddler is often the best searching pattern in rivers that are high and off color. This configuration moves a lot of water and is easy to see.

Marabou Muddler Minnow, Baby Blue
Patty, Rich Barry and I fished Hosmer Lake from Rich's tri-hull. The day had been real tough.  We found a moss bed in the left channel that was holding three dozen Atlantic Salmon and a dozen huge Brook Trout.  All were plainly visible in the clear water.  We tried all kinds of nymphs and all kinds of presentations.  A guy by the name of Paul Hoover had given be a pair of huge Muddler Minnows that were dressed with long blue marabou wings.  Paul said that these flies would catch fish in Central

Oregon lakes when nothing else would.  A rod was rigged with a very fast sinking shooting head line and short, stout leader.  In large fly was cast to the other end of the weed bed and let sink nearly to the bottom.  A salmon followed it but did not strike.  The fly was cast again and let sink and the retrieve was speeded up.  This time a salmon took the fly and was landed.  The next cast the retrieve was speeded up even more and a massive Brook Trout gobbled the fly and after a brief desperate fight, buried itself in in a dense clump of bull rushes and broke the leader.  Ten more casts produced several salmon and an even larger brook trout, which also took the fly away from me.  It was may last blue fly.  That day I was wearing a blue plaid flannel shirt. The center of each square was the same color as the wing on Paul's Muddler.  I started cutting up my shirt and tying pieces onto regular Muddlers.  Patty and Rich caught lots of fish on the flies I made
