View from top


3mm thk close cell foam
TMC 202SP size 1/0 or bigger
Squirrel zonker
Rubber legs
80Ibs mono line
Palm chenille small
Loon Hard Head - black
Gel Super glue

The step by step tying instructions:

Prepare the hook

Tie in the mono line - to prevent the tail from rapping around the hook

Tie in the squirrel zonker as tail

Cut a pcs of 3mm thk close cell foam as per the shape show in picture

Drop some glue on the hook...Tie in the close cell foam

Tie in the palm chenille

Wind in the palm chenille, tie down and trim the extra

Tie in the rubber legs

Fold over the foam, tie down near the hook eye

Cut another pcs of cloce cell foam as per the shape shown

Drop some Gel super glue and tie down the foam as per the picture

Drop a drop of Loon hard head as eye at both side...
The Ice Age Mice is ready...

I like the action, it's easy to cast and the Mice have very good gurgling action if you give it a short quick stripping


Happy tying...
