Float-N-Fly Minnows

Tied a group of float-n-fly minnows this week.  I plan to fish them in the local river this winter.

My favorite sage green craft fur forms the back of each jig.  Barred-brown, grayish-white, and sparkling-tan fur comprises the bellies.  Pearl, pearl red, or fluorescent fire orange krystal flash adds sparkle laterally along the sides of the jigs.

I wanted natural-looking minnows, so chose subdued colors with somewhat earthen tones.  All jigs are tied on 1/16-ounce ball head jigs with #4 black nickel sickle hooks.
