Notes: The Mickey Finn has had a long and storied history. It is responsible for many patterns, Mickey Doodle (#191) and Mickey’s Ghost (#156) are just a couple of the well known streamers that have emerged. Dwayne added a contrasting tail and throat of dark green teal to the iconic Finn to give it a new twist.
Dwayne Miller – I was born and presently reside on Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been chasing trout around PEI since the age of 5 and found out about flyrods at 12. I continued to fish both for a few more years but in 1988 that all changed as my good friend and mentor, Scott Mitchell turned me onto chasing Atlantic salmon with the flyrod. This was a life changing moment, and I’ve been on a mad whirl’wind ride chasing these magnificent fish ever since.
