Arctic Wind Glass Minnow

Arctic wind is a new material from Fly Tyers Dungeon that is really nice. Its a dubbing, with longer fibers that allows you to tie larger flies like glass minnows. There are a number of colors and its a quality product. That being said, this fly is very versatile. With all the colors that FTD offers with Arctic Wind, you should be able to tie any baitfish imitation you want. It would work great for saltwater flies as well as freshwater flies. Its a simple tie, and you should be able to tie 5-10 each hour or more. So you can fill a box quickly.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

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.
