    I wonder if this would work on the ford or a couple other streams in eastern Washington I see tons of these little guys so my guess is yes has any one tried it? Spot not needed.

    Largest brown or trout of any species I have caught to date was on a mouse pattern at Dry Falls.

    Tube tie, very cool. Guy fishes them in daylight, upstream on the strip I see. Here it's mostly a downstream even soft swing, darker the night the better. Two sides of the same coin put into practice.. interesting

    Thanks for posting

    I have found that the best way to fish mice/rats is to "plunk" them down at the end of your cast and to retrieve them like a bass plug. I also color the belly (underside) of my ties with red marker. It is supposed to simulate a wounded mouse. I don't know if it helps, but I have taken some really great fish, especially browns at twilight with a mouse.

    I might have to tie up a mouse or two for the Trinity river. Heading there in a few weeks and I've yet to tangle with a big brown.

    Stilly - I believe you are bound by fly fishing law to hit the Trinity and Klamath if you are that far south on a fishing trip. Sept 15 is prime time.

    Travis - Ten years ago one liked a 4 inch whitefish pattern with two BB split shot three or four inches above the fly, to make it drop fast in between strips..
