    Pretty much any fly with a medium to dark grey body can be tied with Muskrat. Back in the dark ages (you know before computers, the interweb, and the proliferation of synthetics), muskrat was considered an essential fly tying material. Heck , even Lee Wulff (Yeah, I know he is an old dead guy now) used muskrat on his GREY WULLF.
