Thanks guy. I've seen both of those patterns and they are already on my list. What sizes do you generally tie them in? I've had alot of success with both of my patterns on Bass but haven't used them for trout yet.

I have them in size 2 to 8. I don't know if it is the way the fly rides but I have noticed I've hooked a number of fish on the outside of the mouth, particularly when fishing size 2. Most were smaller fish (less than 15") so that might be a bigger influencer. Usually, bigger is better at night, but this is one case where I went smaller. The big fish I've caught all were hooked inside the mouth. I think they just inhale the thing and maybe the smaller fish are first trying to drown the mini beasts first.

I just got done reading Harvey's book a couple weeks ago. If I'm not mistaken he fished the night fly underwater more like a streamer. Not on top like your typical mouse. I may have read that wrong though.

I remember that it was fished just sub surface. But I could be wrong about that. Either way, not a typical mouse.
