X1 Minnow Brookie

This is an updated version of my X1 Minnow in the Brookie color. I have several other colors for both fresh and saltwater. The hair I use on the fly is called either Widow's Web (MFC) or Congo Hair ( but there are many products on the market similar. FTD has a nice selection of colors for quite reasonable prices.
