#9. Stick Minnow

This style of tying has been around a long time. It has been done with other materials like deerhairs and bucktails. It is very simple but effective. It reminds me a lot of a Senko plastic stickbait, so I called it "Stick Minnow".

A Mega thunder Creek Minnow.

Thanks Carl. A quick google search yielded couple variations of the Thunder Creek Minnows.

The closest one to what I have here is the one done with Marabous.

 

A Mega Thunder Creek Minnow it is.

 

Tom,

nice looking bullet head. I would enjoy watching your technique on that one. Anywhere there's water, that's a fish magnet for sure!

Rob, the bullet head was tied reversed style and folded back. Here is a video on another variation of the Thunder Creek Minnow. In the video, the fellow was making it harder then it should be.

Nice, Tom. I'd coat that head in CCG or similar acrylic/epoxy.

Great idea Tim.

 

Great fly. Our poly fake fur tends to float. Did you sink test it?

Mike, I just sink tested in the tub today. It would sink once water logged. Coated the head with epoxy, as Tim had suggested, made it easier to sink.
