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.

Its pulsating, fish-attracting action comes from a generous wing of turkey marabou while the bulky deer hair head makes plenty of subsurface disturbance on the retrieve.

The Muddler can be fished at all depths, but this one is designed to work close to the lake or riverbed with its weighted body.
