Dusky Striped Minnow

A customer of mine asked for a imitation of something called a dusky stripped minnow. He sent me a few photos and I tried to copy it with a fly. He was happy with my creation and I wanted to show you all how I tied it. It was a relatively easy fly to tie, but I do believe it came out good and will catch fish for sure.

The GFF money box

… 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.
