Martinez’s Muddler (a Muddler Minnow variation) by Steve Martinez

This pattern is a variation of the famous and widely used Muddler Minnow.  While maintaining the classic deer hair head, Steve feels that this variation has improved action in the tail, giving it a livelier appearance.

Note:  At Indigo we draw a line in the sand and will never take credit for another tiers creative work.  Though we do think that it is fair and important to show variations when we think they perform better in our waters.
