Arctic Wind Glass Minnow

Recommended Posts

Arctic wind is a new material from Fly Tyers Dungeon that is really nice. Its a dubbing, with longer fibers that allows you to tie larger flies like glass minnows. There are a number of colors and its a quality product. That being said, this fly is very versatile. With all the colors that FTD offers with Arctic Wind, you should be able to tie any baitfish imitation you want. It would work great for saltwater flies as well as freshwater flies. Its a simple tie, and you should be able to tie 5-10 each hour or more. So you can fill a box quickly.
