Copper Bunny Streamer by Bozeman Creative

The Copper Bunny streamer looks like a promising pattern for fishing trout rivers and pike lakes. This meaty streamer will ride hook up and the weighted eyes and body will help the fly descend to the feeding depths in short order. The pattern should be easy enough to switch up the colors to create a range of lures for different situations. White, olives, all black, and combinations should cover the bases.

X1 Minnow Brookie for Pike and Bass

This is an updated version of my X1 Minnow in the Brookie color. I have several other colors for both fresh and saltwater. The hair I use on the fly is called either Widow’s Web (MFC) or Congo Hair (http://www.flytyersdungeon.com/Materials/Chart_Congo_Hair.htm) but there are many products on the market similar. FTD has a nice selection of colors for quite reasonable prices.

Keeled Minnow Streamer by McFly Angler

I’ve been following Shawn from McFly Angler for a few months now and in addition to the great fly tying content on the page, he also ties up some great looking flies. This keeled streamer is great for bass, pike, and larger trout. The fly rides hook up in the water and should help avoid any unscheduled snags. Make sure that you view until the end to get a preview of the fly swimming underwater.
