Panfish Delight

I recently came up with a small jigging type of minnow pattern for someone who wanted a few tied up. After tying it, I realized it would be perfect for jigging for panfish. So I made it brighter and shinier and settled on this pattern. It jigs nicely, and also has some good movement when stripped through the water, and also jigged off the bottom. It rides hook point up, and therefor its more snag resistant.

Materials I used on this fly
Hook: Firehole sticks #516 in size 10
Bead: Slotted Silver Tusten bead size 2.8mm
Weight: .010 sized lead wire
Thread: Veevus 140 power thread in hot orange
Tail: Hot pink ice dub
Body: Chartreuse starburst dubbing
Head: Red rabbit dubbing
Eyes: 5mm 3D eyes
1st UV resin: Solarez "thin hard"
2nd UV resin: Solarez "ultra thin"

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
