Fly Fish Food - Baby Fat Minnow


If you haven't spent any time on Fly Fish Food's website you need to drop what you are doing and get there now.  I tied a few of these tiny minnows for trout, but used the techniques to tie up larger minnows.  Simple and killer.

Fly Fish Food has kits available online, can't get any easier.

Here is a great pattern by Kevin Feenstra at Feenstra Outdoors from up in Michigan.  This is listed as a steelhead pattern, but I have caught crappies and smallies galore with it.  Super simple to tie and easy to cast this is one of my new favorites.

CK Topwater Kreelex Tutorial


This is our newest online fascination, Chuck Kraft's Topwater Kreelex.  The final popper looks simple, but the shaping of the cork head, painting and sealing takes a ton of time. You can order popper kits or finished flies from Eastern Trophies Fly Fishing to save time.  Make sure to check out the other patterns on their website.

Chuck Kraft is a true smallmouth legend!

Phil Rowley's Foam Minnow


I have been tying these up on a larger hook for smallies. Has been working very well.

The Modest Minnow by: Tight Lines Fly Fishing Company and Black Earth Angling


Another great one from the guys at Tight Lines Fly Fishing and Black Earth Angling!  Make sure to stop by their sites and give them support.

If you listen closely he refers to something called "The Crash" in the video.  Here is the link that sheds some light on the term!  Looks pretty dang incredible to me!

The Wisco Cisco by: Tight Lines Fly Fishing & Black Earth Angling Co.


The guys at Tight Lines Fly Fishing and Black Earth Angling uploaded this pattern a few days back on YouTube.  This is a fantastic pattern to tie up.  Haven't fished it yet, but it sure looks fishy.

Give it a go and thanks again for stopping by!
