Mongrel Meat 2

Cheech - September, 2015

The Mongrel Meat has been one of our very best streamer patterns for a few years now, but like many of our patterns, we tweak and modify them constantly to try to make them more effective and more simple to tie. The original Mongrel Meat fished great, but the head was a bear to tie because it involved tying in so many clumps of hair. We fixed that issue with Bruiser Blend Jr. dubbing. Also, I have had a lot of luck with solid metallic colors (gold, silver, and copper) so I decided to add a fair amount of bling to these bugs. Finally, we changed up the hooks to include two of the very best streamer hooks in the game right now, the Gamakatsu B10S and the Daiichi 2461. One modification you can try deals with the ice dub collars... You can try substituting other colors of the metallic colors of ice dub like Silver, Copper, Pearl UV hue, Blue Steelie, and Red, to name a few... You can also tie the fly without any flash to make a more subtle, yet meaty, offering. ~ Cheech
