Muskrat Nymph Variation

Muskrat Nymph Variation

This is a slightly more complicated version of the simple muskrat nymph, and is a great fly for beginner fly tyers. It adds two materials to the simpler version: scud back and gold wire. You can see both versions in the video below. Thanks to Mark Belden and Joe Humphreys at Penn State University for teaching me how to tie this fly. – Eric Reichbaum
