    Default ? RE: Wiggle Minnow

    I have been tying smallmouth patterns on tubes and would like to do the same with Todd's Wiggle Minnow. The original fly is tied so that the back of the fly curves down the curve of the hook, but with a tube, the "shank" is straight. (The pattern I have calls for a TMC 8089). How important is that curve to the movement of the fly? In other words, does that curve do something to the way the fly moves through the water that cannot be duplicated with on a straight tube?

    I think that the curve at the end of the tube will make the fly dart around when you swing it or pull it in if its straight I dont think it will move much

    Is that the foam body fly? Would it be possible to curve the tube somehow and force it to stay in that shape?

    Thanks for the replies. I don't think there is currently a way to curve the tube, but I don't know for sure. Maybe I'll stick to hooks for this fly.
