Mud Puppy 🐉
The Mud Puppy is made with a UV2 micro dragon tail. The snake like swimming action of this roughly 4.75 - 5 inch fly is very seductive. This fly can imitate a baitfish, a worm, leech, salamander, the list goes on. I have added "glow in the dark" resin eyes for added attraction. Tied on a Partridge 1/0 Attitude streamer hook and choose from either a Small-Medium Fish Skull baitfish head or a small sculpin head. Bass, Pike, Musky, Tarpon, Redfish, Cobia, Snook and Cudas will all eat this fly. Here’s a tip, lightly spray the tail with waterproof fabric spray the day before fishing to stop the tail from getting too waterlogged for a lighter fly to throw all day. I recommend using a 6 weight rod and above when throwing this fly. I landed my biggest Largemouth on the black tail with black and light gray synthetic rabbit head. Add a few to your fly box, you won’t be disappointed, did I mention that Smallmouth and Largemouth love this fly!
