Body – Pre Cut stick on Gill Plates silver, pearl or gold.
Eyes- 3-d Prism eyes
Coating – Devcon 5 minute epoxy.
Tying Instructions: Step 1 – Tie some white Kinky Fiber on the top of the hook near the eye of the hook. Double it over so the fibers create a wider profile.
Step 2 – Tie on a pre cut gill plate to each side of the hook. Make sure the gill plates are not down to low because they will block the hook gap.
Step 3 – Tie on a dozen pieces of Krystal Flash or some Angel Hair in the desired color.
Step 4 – Stick the 3-D prism eyes on the gill plates and then use a marker to make red gills.
Step 5 – Do the epoxy in two steps. The first step does the fibers inside the gill plates to hold everything in place. The second coat is to finish the body (keep the epoxy on the light side). After the epoxy dries, trim the Kinky Fiber to a fish shape.
Presentation Tips: Can be fished fast or slow designed to imitate any small minnow like: Glass Minnows, Anchovy, Sardine, SIlversides, Herring, Pilchards.
