This pattern makes a great imitation of a silvery bait fish or a small bottom-dwelling fish

I came up with this pattern during one of our regular snow storms here in Nova Scotia. This is a variation of the popular Marabou Muddler, whose basic techniques and materials remain the same. The pattern can be tied in a wide range of colors.
