Muddled Opal Crippler

Based on Rob Denson’s Pearly Crippler; swapped out the front hackle with dyed deer hair (Interesting that the body hackle and deer hair were from the same dye bath; the deer hair stayed in a lot longer and soaked up more color).

body - medium tinsel opal
body hackle - grizzly dyed ginger (4 Tsp Rit Golden Yellow, 1 Tsp Rit Camel)
