    Been thinking about these, mostly for lakes where I might want to fan a shoreline. But I'm betting it could be a nice smallie pattern too.

    Tied on larger hooks it's a sweet bass pattern for when they're crashing bait. It's a neat pattern for fishing smaller streams where browns or other big-mouthed trout hang out. Very natural look, lots of movement, can be tied very naturally... which can work well in small, often clear rivers where you often don't want to reach for that black gaudy sex dungeon. Of course for our rivers out here it can be a sweet representation of trout, salmon, or whitefish fry for chasing our wet side fish.

    [QUOTE="jasmillo, post: 1338081, member: 6622 I was thinking they would be good during chum fry time. Do you fish that pattern year-round?

    [/QUOTE]

    Absolutely! One of my favorite flies.

    I have experimented with various similar stuff for chum fry but haven't nailed down a winner just yet

    I have seen these (only sooooo much better than these) done by Pete Gray in other websites.
    This is my first fly welding job.

    Very cool! I've never seen that style. I'll have to look into that.

    Very nice and I agree, Pete Gray ties some killer flies.

    Took a break from tying Clousers tonight and started playing around.

    Ended up with this.

    Continuing with the Ripple Ice Deceiver, here are a couple more versions. The smaller single hook version should work for Coho. I think I can make it smaller for rezzies and SRCs. I'm still working on getting the right amount of ripple ice bulk.

    Kind of a "Twiggy" minnow. Nicely done!

    I tie the Rickard's Minnow in various sizes. It's a little quicker & easier than playing with hair. Great along shorelines/cover early & late.
