Disco Mouse

Name Disco Mouse
Category Steelhead Dry Fly
Hook Dry Fly Hook
Thread Black
Tail Dark Deer or Moose Body Hair
Body The hair butt ends are bound to make the tail and the rest of the hair is bound to the body with criss-cross wraps of the thread.
Wing About a dozen strands of pearl Flashabou with deer or moose hair over. The front ends are secure behind the eye and flared it, then clipped to form a flat head.

Disco Mouse is a variation of the Bulkley Mouse created by Collin Schadrech, a Bulkley River guide. The difference is the underwing of pearl Flashabou. This pattern came from the Dick Stewart and Farrow Allen book, Flies for Steelhead.
