OVM MuddlerPosted on 29 November 2012 by Vincent
A couple more days, and lake OVM is open again. The resident fish had their rest for a month. Next week we are going to lake OVM for some winter fishing, time for some new flies!
One of the most productive winter fishing methods on lake OVM, is fishing a muddler on a sinking line. My favorite muddler pattern is one with a mink zonker strip. It gives the fly a lot of movement. Give this one a try on a sinking line and a very slow retrieve. Adapt your leader length to the depth you want to fish this fly: Short leader = close to the bottom, long leader = higher above the bottom.
