Is it a nymph or a minnow? Nymph-o-Minnow-ac

In actuality, it doesn't really matter what this pattern represents since the trout, bass, and steelhead love it. Nymph-o-Minnow-ac was designed to be suggestive of a wide array of aquatic life from small forage fish to larger mayfly nymphs (Hexagenia, Litobrancha, Ephemerra, etc.). The articulated feature gives this pattern unparalleled action and flutter. Give one a go!
