The Muddler Minnow is perhaps the oldest of the sculpin imitating patterns, and it still works. Its clipped deer hair head is cut to the right profile to successfully imitate a live sculpin, and when fished with a sink tip or split shot, it floats far enough off the bottom to be quickly noticed by a cruising trout. The colors of the Muddler Minnow not only look like a small bait fish or sculpin but can be used as a hopper imitation in a pinch. Per 3.
Sizes: 4, 6, 8.
