Welcome to the site, Yooper.

First thing I can offer is ... take a little time to browse through some threads.  I believe most of your questions have been asked/answered before.

 

Second thing I can offer is: www.flytyersdungeon.com .

You'll find vast quantities of (mostly) synthetic materials for tying streamers and other flies.  There are tutorials and the guy who runs/owns it is a great source of knowledge on his materials.

Fly fishing  for fish 15'+ deep is not my kind of fun, it can be done, but takes more time and patience than I have, just waiting for the line to sink is more than I can do. I target fish near the surface, preferably fish I can see.

Welcome aboard from a fellow Michigander yooper. Down in the SE corner of the LP here but home away from home is in the NE corner on the Au Sable. Welcome to FTF, enjoy.

Welcome aboard.
Phil Rowley's Balanced Minnow is a perfect design for lake fishing with an indicator (bobber for fly fishing).
Note: Larger balanced leeches are also considered minnows.
Fly Tiers Dungeon sells similar (inexpensive) dubbing and is called leech dubbing.
