its on either a 2/0 or 3/0 stinger hook....I'm not sure....its one of the last few stinger hooks that Gqualls gave me and they were'nt labeled.

Why does everyone tie deerhair mice with brown hair when a mouse is grey???

Brad...its the same hook that I used on the deerhair minnow above it if that gives you any better idea??

Tom, that mouse is too cute!

By the way, there are many species of mice. Our southern field mouse is grey, but the northern woodmouse is brown. In fact it's markings are so similar to a white tailed deer's that it is often called a deermouse. I was going to challenge Plumbob to us deermouse belly hair for the wing on his size 32 Royal Wulf, but I guess the joke would have been lost....

AHH that makes sense then....I've seen rats that were brown...but only seen the common grey mouse....are the brown ones more likely to be found out in the wild??
