I was so excited with this accomplishment I thought I would post a step-by-step of my improved "Post Boulders Mouse". It's a rip off (aren't all patterns kind of rip-offs of others) of Fly Fish Food's "Mousey McMouseface" with my own little twist. Without going into much detail, this was the only mouse to elicit blow ups this last trip (and I had a ton!) but something wasn't right with the hooks I used and where I put them. This is my 2.0 model and hope to give these a test-run soon...
Hook: Allen MP003BL back #10 & MP002 middle #4; articulation shank or make your own =front "hook"
Thread: GSP or Kevlar
Tail: Small piece of zonker strip, suede leather strip, furled cordage
Body: Rainy's "Evazote foam" & Zonker strips
largest gauge stainless steel wire I could get (I bought this from Bass Pro Shops) to make articulated shanks. I think this is leader material (that's the section I bought it in) but either way it does the job. You obviously can use pre-made articulation shanks too.
