    Theo Baklar from Austria introduced Eel to me years ago. The dried skin is similar to snake skin when dry, tie it to a streamer pattern...say for wings or a tail. Once it hits water...WOW!  it comes alive!! Great action to it.
     
    One of his patterns he showed me was a muddler...he used the eel for the wings.

    I would like to see that pattern! Hopper time is coming. Caught 20 in one hole this week near the N.y. border using a porky quill and deer hair. Just messing around and tyed this up at camp. Road kill is great stuff.
