Presentation Tips: This is a new fly for me, and I hope I haven't stolen anyone else's name for it. I got an amazing reaction from Bluegills as I tested it, and I have every confidence that it will work for trout as well. It can be weighted if you like with a few wraps of lead, or maybe a silver bead head. I designed it to imitate the reflectiveness and White belly of a live minnow.
