Tying the Mule Deer Diver

The Mule Deer Diver



The Mule Deer Diver was originally tied for float-tube popping on Western Washington State's lakes and ponds. 25 years later and now on the East Coast, it remains a staple in my box and continues to catch fish whenever attached to the leader. Simple to tie & easy to trim, it floats like a cork and has great diving action through the water.
