Below you'll find my Hairless Mouse.

Supplies needed

 

Getting started

 

Almost done.

 

Just add paint and eyes.

Don't forget to glue the the pieces together,

the tail to the bottom and so on.

 

I hope these work.

 

 

I only did this because I have no idea how to tie deer hair.

Hi Kirbaer,

I hope they work for you also.

 

I'm not sure where you are located, but the Chicagoland Bassbuggers will be working on some deer hair techniques a little later this year. (Date yet to be determined.)

 

In the interim, if you can get a hold of a couple of Chris Helm, Deer Hair DVDs, they will help you tremendously in figuring out spinning/stacking deer hair. It really is a lot of fun.

 

Keep on innovating and tying.

You should name that fly the "Butt Ugly"...

KB,

 

I really like that photo sequence. It really tells the story. Have you tank tested one yet.

 

You are in good company using foam instead of deer hair. Bob Clouser uses foam bodies a lot because spinning deer hair is time consuming. Of course there is my favorite-the Stealth Bomber- which is similar to your mouse. It slides; it dives; it pops depending on how you work it.
