This fly really works well for bass and large trout on rivers. The way this is tied, insures the hook point will stay upright no mater what. This helps you fish the bottom and even heavy cover without any issues. You can bump it over rocks and branches, and it will just swim right over them. Also, the tubing material looks a lot like a minnow belly, so it works out really well. A very lifelike imitation.

This material is awesome to work with. Its a new blend of material made form Fly Tiers Dungeon called "Arctic Wind" and I love it. Lots of flash, and very shiny. Also the fibers are long enough for decent sized streamers. I am tying a fat head minnow pattern today. They are small brownish, white bellied, bait fish with a distinct dark lateral line. They are one of the most popular live baits in conventional fishing, and many freshwater fish eat them. This fly is about 2" long and has a very sharp jigging action.
