Gummy Minnow

Gummy Minnow Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Gummy Minnow is a super realsitic baitfish pattern that works very well for minnow eating ocean species.  The Gummy Minnow can be tied on several different color variations, such as Brown, Olive, Blue and Pearl.  The Gummy Minnow is simple, in that it is only made of 2 materials (Crystal Skin and Eyes).  But the Gummy Minnow in not necessarily easy to tie.  The Crystal Skin or “Sili Skin” can be very difficult to work with.  It is super sticky and clings to anything.  Once you get the hang of this fly and get used to working with Crystal Skin, you can begin to crank them out!
