Cleaning up with mops

by Bill Piatek
(NM)

Ok, I know they are the ugliest flies we've ever seen but mop flies have been getting a lot of fish around here. A friend and I saw one guy standing in the same spot catch over 70 stocker trout in a few hours with a purple bead head mop on a fly rod. We counted. :-)

Has anybody tried them for fixed line fishing?

Warning:

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
