Ginger Minner - Baitfish Pattern

My Favorite Color??  Light Tan

This fly is basically just a larger version of the Baby Fat Minnow, but there are some challenges when you tie this fly larger.  I use more marabou, I dub the body differently, and the head is constructed a little bit differently as well.  This pattern was first tested in Argentina where the local Perca and Brown Trout ate it with wreckless abandon.
