Wow, what a cool little muddler... fairly simple tie too. I know exactly where I'd use that fly... Nice job!

Chucking a dead parrot on a piece of string!
That’s very orange! I used to tie something very similar for brown trout in Scotland. The full orange version caught a few fish, but the same thing with natural deer hair was much more effective.

I like that Chukar, I'll have t get some to play with.

If you leave your thread at the back it'll keep your wire wraps tight.

I'm not quite following this; could you clarify?

Like so; tie the wire in but don't wrap the thread forward

start wrapping the wire forward, against the thread that's hanging down, using the weight of the bobbin to keep the wire wraps tight
