Minnow body patterns

Recommended Posts

For fishing small lakes and ponds, I recommend staying small with your presentations, too. A small "panfish Charlie" tied with some added flash will attract some big attention.


This is my "Panfish Attractor" that I tied up trying to develop a weedless fly. Bead chain eyes, dubbing body, a little flash and Raccoon tail hair for the "wing". I like Raccoon because it stays "bushy" even when wet.

It was only after posting pictures of it that someone pointed out it looked a lot like a "Charlie".


The only flash in mine is a small amount for the tail fibers. I believe too much flash, in small waters, makes the fish a little more wary of the offering.

Thanks for the reminder, Mike. Added a few of these to my arsenal.
