Lil’ Hood Rat Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Lil’ Hood Rat is the baby brother to the Original Hood Rad.  The Lil Hood Rat is a great pattern in small creeks and high mountain lakes.  Small Brown and Brook Trout love to tear up this small mouse pattern!  The Lil Hood Rat has been downsized from the regular Hood Rat, and uses Pine Squirrel Fur instead of Rabbit Fur.  This is a great micro mouse pattern and a must have in your small stream box!!
