Silky Minnow

This fly I am calling the Silky Minnow, because it uses water silk fiber from fly tiers dungeon. This material flows well in the water, and has interesting movement. It is sort of a high tie type of tying style, and will swim very well. It can almost hover in the water, and sinks very slowly making for good movement when targeting finicky fish. Short and soft tugs will make the fly jerk like a dying baitfish, then sink slowly slightly angled head down, just like a dying baitfish would.
