When it comes to catching a snook with a fly rod it is hard to decide what fly to tie on. For me, I have a number of patterns that I go to when I need to seal the deal. The Backwater Muddler Minnow is always one of them.
Whether you are chasing snook during the mullet run or in the backwater lagoons of the Everglades National Park, this is one fly you will want in your box. Below is a step-by-step instructional video that will help you walk through the tying process.
One of the cool things about this fly is the fact that is uses a mix of natural and synthetic materials while incorporating basic and intermediate tying techniques. From start to finish this is certainly one of my favorite flies to tie.
Oh, lets not get started on its effectiveness in multiple color patterns. Whether you tie it in red/white, black/purple, chartreuse/tan, or classic white/natural this fly is going to land you fish. All you have to do is feed it to them.

Keep your hearts right, and your lines tight!
