Muncher
« on: December 29, 2013, 08:58:58 AM »




Here is my version of Ian Colin James Muncher Fly.  I use smaller versions for brook trout in my favorite pond.  I can never get two to look alike.  I also caught quite a few rainbows with it as well when other flies were not working.   I think the leg action is quite an attractor.   I have no idea what it represents but it might give the impression of a backswimmer.   More info and instructions on my blog.

Very Buggy!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

According to Ian, this is his go-to fly for any number of trout species and bass.  He designed it for Steelhead.  It really works.  I would recommend having some in your box.  I slowly retrieve it over weed beds with an intermediate line.
