Default Mylar tube minnows

After MrEsoxs post I thought I would post a pattern. The bottom is one I bought as a pattern. The top is my version for local fish. Sorry about the bad picture.

It is only about three inches long, but works pretty well in the very clear lakes around here. Especially when you find bass hitting bait.

Gar, nicely tied fly. What did you use inside the mylar to shape the body?

Mylar tube is tied to the hook. Length of 2 mm foam slid inside to make shape. Some synthetic material tied in the end for the tail. The foam is colored dark on the top and has a red line for the gill before sliding in. There is a length of shiny tape on the side of the foam for some flash. The foam and the hook offset each other and it almost has a nuetral boyancy.

Ok. I was wandering what was inside of it to hold its shape.
