How to tie... a kinky muddler

Jonny King invented a awesome baitfish pattern years ago, it turned into one of my favourite pattern in our lakes. Because there is no weight on it it's really easy to cast and there is a lot of movement and a nice baitfish shape. Last but not least, it's easy to tie and the material is cheap. So here we go step by step:

 

What you need is some syntetic fibers like Steve Farrar, EP oder other fibers with a fancy name. 
Use just a really small amout of not only because you save money, if you use to much material the streamer will be like an indicator.

Step one: tie in a tail and tie it to the back



Step 2:Do the same on the top with an other color

Again the same steps until you reach the hook eye

 

Just make a few wraps in front of the hair at the eye, don't tie it back like the fibers at the body





so now you have a ugly bunch of fibers on a hook, take a sciccors and cut it like a triangle 

shape the material to the other side and to the same

add some fancy eyes 

if you add some UV resin or epoxy on the head and eyes they will stay longer and you get a nice head shape



And you're ready for fishing!
