Default Big T's Shaggy Mop

Taking a mop fly to another level. The buggy-ness of this variation almost moves it from junk status to natural.

I like it! Good work as usual T.
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.

Great looking mop variant.
Such a simple, yet effective fly to tie.

Big T I believe these are the mops you tied for me. They should be called producers because they do work. My grandkids caught several trout last week after the bucket brigade at Whitewater fishing only with your shaggy mop, I caught several on the Ami and at Smith Creek with this fly. Green, tan, brown all have produced.

Very nice tye T, that thing looks like it could crawl away
"Fly Fishing Is Not A Team Sport"----Tom McGuane

The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”
