The cold weather continues and therefore, so does the fly tying! In between tying what we need to, we will often times try to come up with some newer flies. Today was one such day.
Here is a picture of a few of the first in a series of Robinson's Munchable Minnows.
Integrated into some of these patterns is Senyo Laser Dub...a new signature material developed by our very own Greg Senyo and manufactured by Hairline Dubbin Inc. The material is available through Orvis and will soon be available through your local vendors.
The Munchable Minnow - Pumpkinseed
The above fly will prove deadly on different species of Bass, but don't dismiss it as a viable Steelhead fly. In dirty water, I'm quite confident that the old Pumpkinseed will produce.
Below you can see a bit of the profile of this fly. It is very narrow to better imitate the true nature of most baitfish of small gamefish.
Another color combo in the photo that proved deadly during high muddy water this past fall.
While the ice fishing is in full swing, get to that vice and get prepared for the thaw. If there is any way that we can assist you in that, feel free to drop us a line. We would love to help out in any way we can.
