Puglisi Perfect Minnow |
By Jason Akl
If you are looking for that killer minnow pattern then look no further. The Puglisi Perfect Minnow is everything the name spells out and more. These flies are as good as it gets when you are trying to imitate live baitfish. Their shape, color and action make them irresistible.
The Perfect Minnow series of flies are created with an amazingly translucent fiber that was originated by Enrico Puglisi specifically for use in tying large saltwater streamer patterns. This unique fiber in the water behaves like a cross between marabou and bucktail: breathing and pulsating with every strip of the line. Additionally this fiber sheds water rather than absorbing it, keeping large flies lightweight and easy to cast especially in windy conditions.
Tie this fly in sizes 4 - 1/0.
