I had one of my subscribers ask me to tie up a few of these for him. They are good flies, and I have tied them up for him in the past. He said they were effective and durable, and wanted more. So I decided to tie them for you guys as well, and make a video on them. Fathead minnows are a common food source for predatory fish in many parts of the US, and this fly mimics a larger sized one pretty well. They have a dark lateral line down their body, and a dark head. The head is also really fat. So this fly works as a great imitation. Here is a list of materials I used on this fly. Hook: Gamakatsu B10S in size 6 Thread: Veevus power thread 140 in brown Weight: .025 sized lead wire Tail: Arctic wind dubbing in black Body: Arctic wind dubbing in white Back: Arctic wind dubbing in tan Head: Arctic wind dubbing in brown Head cement: Solarez "Bone Dry" ultra thin UV curing resin
