We’ve found another candidate to extract loose bills from Romano … Evan V, who correctly answered muddler minnow as “Most Versatile Fly in the World,” if only because woolly bugger was taken. Woolly bugger was a great call, but I gave you hints vis a vis the weather conditions and the season. Fall is not only streamer time, it’s hopper time, and the muddler is not only a great streamer pattern for those cool mornings, but I cannot estimate the number of fish that old standard has caught when greased up and drifted like a dry hopper. Dead drifting muddlers below the surface is also a killer tactic; sometimes those bigger fish like to key on drowned hoppers. Give it a try sometime.
