Deer Hair Mouse – Best Fly Fishing Flies

The Deer Hair Mouse is an interesting fly, that is becoming more and more popular as each year passes. With the help of video, research and some really creative guys out there making some amazing fly fishing videos, we have seen that Trout love large items of prey such as mice. Over the years of Trout fishing, we have found a variety of large insects, mice and snakes in the stomachs of Trout, but some of these newer videos show you how aggressive the Trout feed on small mammals and snakes, it is actually quite amazing.
