    Still tying tiny streamers for small rivers near my home on the west side. I tied this one up and sent pictures to my daughter and asked her to name it.. Hint the reason it is now called the "PIXI MINNOW". My name suggestion "Micro Trout Slayer 5000" was voted out pretty quickly.

    What do you all think? Will it fish?

    That looks like an epic fry pattern. I'd fish it.

    Pixi minnow is a pretty good name
    Ultra trout slayer minnow 5000 is good too though

    that will fish, even in the Salt for SRC... no doubt. I fish a similar looking pattern but bigger for SRC.
