I agree with the meat whistle. That pattern is super productive in the rivers I fish. I like it in white, olive, black, and brown. It is tied on a jig hook so getting snagged on the bottom is much less of a problem. I have found them to be effective stripped as well as dead drifted through a run.

I am also a big fan of the sparkle minnow. I have had some of my best streamer days in the spring with this pattern in olive. Easy to tie and throw on a smaller rod.
