Hemorrhoidal Mouse (As seen and Used in Eastern Rises)

This is a big trout magnet in Colorado, Alaska, Montana, and Russia. Pardon the crowd noise as this video was filmed during our legendary fly shop Christmas party! If you weren’t there, you missed a good show!

    Great video. And I love Eastern Rises!

    I have been tying mice for a while and I was curious, is there anywhere up in Wyoming to fish with mice?

    Thanks guys!

    What sort of chenille do you guys use for this one ? Much stiffer than mine – is it wired ? Thanks.

    Nice tying vid, but it’s not the mouse from Eastern Rises, isn’t it? The H-mouse Frank was fishing in Eastern Rises was deerhair with an orange foamback. Something like a gurgler. Can’t you show that one in a tying video?
    Many thanks!

    Frank stated that they did fish this one during the movie, but when they needed to substitute out the mice due to supply of Gink, he would sometimes tie them with an orange foamback, so you are correct with that.
