The Perfect Transparent Bait Fish
A glassy, transparent minnow
Eager to create semi realistic patterns, convinced they fish better than more conventional standard patterns I continue to play and experiment with translucent and transparent materials to get the light shine through my flies. To me the silhouette, the movement and natural look is most important.
After some weekends where I experimented with different methods and designs I came up with the Perfect Transparent Bait Fish. As we do not have great dry fly waters on Sealand I now found new and better ways of using my Blue Dun capes for the longer body part of this new sandy eelish imitation.
