Mouse Rat Fly Tying Video Instructions – Whitlock’s

Deer Hair Mouse Fly Tying Video Instructions Whitlocks MouseratThe Deer Hair Mouse Rat has been a longtime standard for all Mice Patterns.  The Mouse Rat was developed by master fly tier Dave Whitlock.  Today’s Mouserat is a bit different than the original.  The original Mouse Rat was tied with shammy/leather for the tail and the ears.  I actually prefer to use foam for the tail and ears.  Foam floats much better than the shammy/leather, making the fly float and fish much better!  The Mouse Rat is most commonly used for predatory Alaskan Rainbow Trout (and Russian Trout too), but is also great for Bass, Pike and Musky!  Give them a try, they are a blast to tie!
