Tying Video: Backwater Muddler

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.

If you have any questions about how to tie this fly or would like to request a pattern to be tied, please shoot us an email at backwaterflyfishing@yahoo.com.

Keep your hearts right, and your lines tight!

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of backwaterflyfishing.com as well as our online fly shop, backwaterflies.com. The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
