3 Top Mouse Patterns For Fly Fishing Patagonia Chile
One of our favorite tactics for targeting bigger brown and rainbow trout in Patagonia, Chile is by skating a mouse. There is nothing that is more exciting than watching a big two foot brown come off the bank and inhale your mouse fly off of the surface. This is one of the best takes in fly fishing and should be at the top of your list of things to accomplish. Our favorite patterns are fly's that have three very important qualities. Profile, Lot's of Foam, and sharp trout sized hooks. We have put together three of our favorites and hope that you give them a go the next time you reach for a mouse pattern.
The Morrish Mouse
The Morrish Mouse is undoubtedly one of the all time top producing mouse fly's in the world. This fly was invented by Ken Morrish from the Pacific Northwest in the U.S.A. and has been terrorizing large trout every since it hit the fly bins. We really like this fly for it's natural looking profile but the overall maximum floatability and the minimal maintenance on the water are the reasons that we think that you will really like this fly.
Mr. Hankey Mouse
Oh Mr. Hankey. How we love thee. You always float. Zero maintenance. You chug like a college beer drinking champion and you always seem to catch big fish. This fly was invented by Jeff Hickman on the Kanektok River in Alaska and has proven it's fish catching ability the world over. You will quickly fall in love with this pattern and will prove it's worthiness in your lineup.
The Darth Skater Mouse
The Darth Skater is a another great pattern from the vise of fellow friend and pioneer Bill Marts who developed this fly for fishing in Alaska for big surface feeding rainbows. I was with Bill on his first initial trials of the fly in Alaska and the fish responded with reckless abandon to his patterns and from that day forward they have become a staple in our fly box. The creativity and thought that went into this mouse tube fly is ingenious.
