Mummichug Pattern?

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good Mummichug (Killifish) pattern? I see these guys all the time in the estuaries, some of the only bait I usually can see.

Capt.Todd Murphy has one that is tops. I'll bet that Bill Stanton will testify too. I'll try to get him to post the pattern, either here or on his website which will go live soon.

Hi All,

We caught some fish the last few days on that pattern. I use it on the flats sometimes when I want to show them something different. Not many anglers throwing it. It works great! Its actually a bone fish fly. They sell it at "Fishing the Cape" Deer hair head, wool body ( all brown) and stripes. Dont tell anyone I posted this or some of my guide buddies will be mighty pissed at me!

Best,

Randy

Eric,
Cpt. Todd hooked me up with a pattern when we went out on his boat. The next time we get together, I'll show it to you.
Great pattern.
Z.

Another winner 'chog pattern I've seen is with layered polarfibre, crystal flash (rootbeer) blended in, and either a spun deerhead, woolhead, or stout epoxy head. Small eyes, dull brown with light underside and speckled appearance.

My theory is that the stout head pushes a lot of water and gets a good reaction. Bass enjoy the chubby little morsels along the shoreline often so are prone to go for them too.

Mummichugs almost always sit right on the bottom. So, I use epoxy minnows, which sink slowly & ride along the bottom; use muted colors (olive, coral, rootbeer) & you've got a decent immitation.

Todd use a boski slider for a mumachug. It is a florida bonefish pattern. Go to http://www.flyshop.com/Bench/ and look up bonefish slider

Nate -

Got a zero for search results with "boski" and Ross Purnell's (the editor) 'sliders' for "slider".

That and the big nasty hitting close to home for my bunny rat pattern and I had a less than satisfying user experience ;-)

Can you provide a link to the pattern itself? thanks!

Thanks Nate, Matt -

I was referring to the search results from the VFS archive. I also found tons of results by searching for "borski" on LYCOS ;D

Nate - appreciate the original reply, is there a Xmas Island story behind that quick reply on the slider?

Eric,
FWIW....the killies I have seen in the Merimack River are black/grey/silver with yellow highlights on their fins.
