Default Minnow (generic)

Hook: your favorite and size
Thread: 6/0 white or clear mono
Under body: shaped stim-u-dent tooth picks
Tail: marabou
Back: bills body braid or equivalent
Over body: bills body braid or equivalent
Eyes and body markings: acrylic paint
Coating: uv resin, epoxy and sally hansens hard as nails

the above recipe is merely a suggestion of what to use. as a creative tyer you have the option to switch items in the recipe to suit your needs or material supply.

Stim-U-Dents

Click the image to open in full size.

remove a couple of stim-u-dents from the package and position 1 on top of the hook shank as shown, approximately at the barb of the hook

switch hands and continue to hold the tooth pick. matk the tooth pick for length and for the forward shape of the body as shown

transfer the measurement to the other tooth pick and tie the tooth picks onto the hook shank. at this time you can head cement the entire body if desired.
then tie in the marabou tail

Click the image to open in full size.

tie in a strip of bills body braid (green for the back) and a strip of bills body braid (silver or pearl for the body)

Click the image to open in full size.

wrap the silver braid forward and tie off. pull the back braid forward over the top of the body and tie off.

Click the image to open in full size.

add eyes and whatever marking you want with the acrylic paint and let dry. coat the body of the fly with a uv resin or epoxy. overcoat with sally hansens hard as nail polish if necessary

Click the image to open in full size.

you can weight the fly by using flat lead sheet or strips on the side of the body or a length of round/square lead wire as the keel of the fly

thanks for looking

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.
