Is anyone usually tying todd's wiggle minnow here?
I really love its wiggle action but the original designer's size is too big for me because I usually fish with 4WT rod and 4x tippet for small fishes.
The image below is the todd's wiggle minnow I tied with gamakatsu octopus hook #6 (it's similar to #10 or #8 regular fly hook) and #12 B10S. The weight of these fly is only about 0.25g.
The problem is that I have difficulty on making them running straight in the water when fast retrieving.(it will roll over or spin)
I tried to trim the "face" of the fly but It doesn't work. The trimming even spoiled the action of my fly.
However this fly is extremely effective in medium and slow speed.
Do you have any suggestion for making it swimming straight?
