Mummichogs on fly ....

Postby meatstick » Tue May 22, 2012 4:59 pm

While most people are looking to catch the largest fish, I sometimes go in the opposite direction. Now I've done this many times, but today wanted to test my one material fly. Just chartreuse thread ... a little left hanging out past the bend. # 24 TMC midge hook. It worked fine, but I still catch 'em faster wrapping a strand of pearl krystal flash around the shank and use red thread for the head-wrap. The 4-6 inch mummi's are very aggressive, just couldn't locate them today.

Thanks, Emerson ... a 3 turn clinch was much easier to tie. If you look closely you'll see a critter smaller than the fly ... clinging to the bottom of the mummi's right gill flap.
