Well, you all know me and how my flies mostly use the K.I.S.S. format. This month I've been tying up lots of Cypert Minnows. I usually tie them on a size 8 or 10 2X or 3X long hook. The ones pictured are tied on a 2X. They're a fairly simple tie and they work like dynamite on fish that eat small minnows. Particularly, white bass and crappie. I'll be sure to have plenty on hand for this spring when the crappie "wake up" and the white bass start running. All you need is a little bit of white or light gray chenille and some holographic mylar tubing. Did I mention they are tough as nails as well?

I tied up some tenaka flies today trying new things. Some of them didn't turn out to well, but they can go to the panfish to be devoured. I think the best was the one with the peacock swords inspired by a fly i saw on here a couple days ago, but can't remember who tied it at this moment.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929
