I don't know who is looking after his estate Paul. His death was a great loss to the Aussie fly community.

I have fond memories of Muz. Not very different to me. I’ll see what I can be done.

Cheers, Paul

Hi Lars,

Muz Wilson was an Aussie fly fisher and tier. Invented a material called the Fuzzle dub or something like that. Has some very nice flies for Brim eg BMS. I still have a few. I met him a few times, at Haysie’s in Tassie and on my bike ride around Oz, where we went fishing and had a night on the beer. Unfortunately he died a few years ago at an unfortunately young age. There is a video of him somewhere casting and walking on a tightrope. When we get the Sexyloops Glossary idea reimplemented we can give him a great page.

Cheers, Paul

"Muz" is a common shortening of the name Murray in Australia.

Thanks for posting that vid mate. Watched it with a mixture of sadness and fond memories.

Cheers
