Fly guys….this is a video of me tying what I will call my Sugar Creek Minnow. I have made this video due to several requests after watching my last video… An Epic Day on Sugar Creek. This pattern is not too tough and can be made in a variety of colors…however, the one I find I do the best with is the silver/shad color combination as shown. This fly can be fished a wide variety of ways…I like to fish it under my type 1 sink tip line as I can swim it in front of and behind boulders, cover, etc….In the summer when the water is low and clear…I like to fish it with a floating line, making long casts into pools and just allowing the fly to ‘dead-drift’ into the ‘death-zone’…the spot by which big predatory smallies lurk and wait to crush a meal. So, give it a try and I think you will learn that this is a go-to pattern.
