    And just a few others. A Thunder Creek minnow (#8) and some brassie midges (#14). I haven't taken many trout on minnow patterns, probably because I don't fish them that often (not a "confidence fly" of mine). They do work well on warm water fish around here though. I like this version of the midges using silver brassie wire and one other color, here I have one in black, one in green, and one each in red and maroon. Sorry, kinda hard to see the colors. These work really well for me on the lakes, particularly in spring.
