Anyone have any tips?

I read Skok's page but my flies are absolutely horrible!

This material is so ridiculous to work with...

Make sure that the material is tapered at both ends before you apply it to the hook by pulling out strands and also make sure it is not too dense. You have all summer to learn, the Mushie comes into it's own during Albie season. Skok himself says that early attempts at the fly come out ugly, but they still catch fish! :biggrin:
