Tying the Morrish Mouse

11 Feb Tying the Morrish Mouse

The Mighty Mouse II video (filmed right here on the Aniak) took the internet by storm last week. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and take a look. If you noticed, the secret weapon was the Morrish Mouse. Why do we – and the trout for that matter – like it so much? We like it because it’s easy enough to throw with a 5 wt, it floats right side up really well (even after being dragged under and chomped on time and time again), and it’s not made to be cute. Why do out trout like it? Who knows, but as anglers we will keep making up reasons.

So, when you’re headed up this way be sure to prep your fly box with a few dozen of these babies, and thanks to the folks over at InTheRiffle you can tie them yourself.

Trout that eat mice have sharp teeth! Couldn't even count how many fish this baby caught.
