Letumgo's Lake Erie Shiner
Hook - TMC Model 700 / Size 6
Thread - 8/0 UNI-Thread (White)
Tinsel Core - 5 Strands of UV Gray Krystal Flash (Folded over tying thread and tyed in)
Back - Small bundle of Fly Tyer's Dungeon Congo Hair (Minnow Back Blend)
Belly - Small bundle of Fly Tyer's Dungeon Congo Hair (letumgo's Lake Erie Blend)
Eyes - 1/8" Holographic 3D stick on eyes (Gold)
Head - Clear Coat Goo Brushable Cure Resin / cured with UV light
Gills - Drawn on with Red Sharpie Marker
Minnow profile is trimmed after the fly is complete. I find that it is easiest to trim the fly from the back. Long scissors make the job easier and gives better results.

does it flip on its side or all the way over? will the hook keel it?
plenty of my flies are weighted at the front but i try to make sure they will track straight.

"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

Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.
