Murdich Jig Minnow

Curtis Fry - November, 2018

The first time we saw Jeff Creamer's variation of a Murdich minnow, we knew it would be a winner. It falls in the category of super-sparkly streamer patterns like the Sparkle Minnow and others. The nice thing is that this pattern doesn't have many materials. It's pretty straight-forward and easy to tie. Fish it as a streamer or jigged along with a Euro nymph or regular nymph rig.
