Warm-water fly swap entry: Brown maribou muddler

There in the mail so I can enter my flyy for the warmwater flyswap in the archive now.

Brown maribou muddler

hook: #8 Mustad 94840BLN
thread: white, 6/0 for body & wing, 3/0 for head
tail: brown Maribou
body: DMC gold metallic embroidery thread
wing: brown Maribou
Head: Dyed brown deer body hair trimmed to suit.

I tie these in two steps which is the reason for the different threads. First I tie in the tail, form the body and add the wing for all the flys I'm tying. Then a couple of nights later I come back and do the deer hair heads. I've found that I make better flys this way.
