Polar Fibre Minnow

Cheech - December, 2021

The baitfish pattern that has caught fish all over the world.  This pattern has been a staple in the saltwater world, but trout also like it quite a bit due to how well it tracks in the water and how it doesn't foul around the hook.  This can be tied in a variety of sizes, but it excels in the 2.5" to about 4" range because the taper of this fly is built in to the polar fibres, which are like extra pliable craft fur fibers.  As always, tie them in a variety of colors to match whatever you are chasing!
