How to Tie: The Sheep Mullet

Difficulty: Easy

With March being here, it’s official that Spring is right around the corner. Warmer weather, milder conditions, and longer days are just a couple things many anglers in the United States are desperately waiting for. Our trout friends repeatedly save our sanity during the colder months, but thoughts of predator fishing always seem to creep up this time of year. Whether you are chasing tarpon in the Florida Keys or striped bass in Maine, the Sheep Mullet is a fantastic baitfish imitation to stock your predator box with.

When it comes to baitfish patterns, this one is as simple as it gets. White body materials will allow you to add coloration using a waterproof marker, which is a simple and cost friendly solution for variation among your flies. Profile is a very important aspect to tying baitfish, so taking your time on the first few is never a bad idea. The Sheep Mullet won’t give many tyers trouble on the vise and is perfect for limited time after hours sessions.

If you’re chasing predatory fish, the odds are good that they will eat this fly. Bring this pattern with you on trips from warm water to blue water and fish with confidence. By simply changing hook size and material length, you’ll be able to imitate a wide variety of bait and fill your fly box with ease. Predator patterns don’t need to be complicated to be effective, and the Sheep Mullet is the perfect example of that.
