  1. Dear List-- I am a newcomer to this wonderful site and also new to fly tying, although I have been fly fishing all my life. I am trying to perfect a wiggle minnow (had awesome luck with this pattern chasing smallies on the Penobscot a few weeks ago). I have read previous threads about this great pattern and watched some videos but I still can't seem to get the foam cylinder to form a hump on the hook shank--it always comes out more or less straight. (See picture attached.) I am using a Daichi 2720. I assume the trick is in cutting the slit in the foam? Should the slit be shallower at the head and get deeper towards the tail? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Tight lines!
