Chinook Moto Minnow by Friday Night Flies

Zach ties up this Chinook Moto Minnow using a green and blue color combo. The fly works great on higher water conditions and the salmon seem to really key in on this color. When you tie them, don’t forget to pack em.

Jimmy Legs by Bow River Troutfitters

Jimmy Legs is a simple weighted stonefly pattern. The variegated chenille imparts a natural appearance to the damp fly and the 8 flexible legs help to suggest living prey item for searching fish. While the fly will work wonderfully on Alberta’s Bow River, I’m giving this one a whirl on some of the Great Lakes tribs this summer.

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.
