Muddler Black #12
Muddler Black #12 - The head is tied with natural deer hair and then clipped into shape. The Buoyant deer hair keeps the Muddler Black #12 off the bottom, so it can be fished at all depths. The deer hair is hollow and the trapped air makes it buoyant. The Muddler Black #12 can be fished as a wake fly when the weather is dull which is usually late in the season when the sedges can be seen skating on the surface.
