Long Cut Minnow Streamer pattern

IMG_8685

The long cut minnow is becoming a staple in our streamer arsenal for the snake river below American falls, South Fork of the snake, and above American Falls Reservoir due to its effectiveness and simplicity. This streamer pattern allows you to put a very realistic bug in the water without spending hours on the vise. Great profile and movement along with durability due to it being 100% synthetic materials.

Whether you are targeting Small mouth Bass or chasing that trout of a life time on sections of the Snake River we feel confident with this bug hanging off the tip of our rods. Great bug choice for swinging through runs or blind casting and searching for that big fish.

Hot fly pattern for Snake river and southeast Idaho lakes.

The Balanced Chironomid has been absolutely lethal the past couple weeks. While setting up your indicator rigs for Henry’s lake, Daniels reservoir, and Hawkins¬† reservoir you should defiantly have this balanced leech variation hanging below. The red color along with black and purple variations have been crushing fish. This pattern has also been great on the snake river below American Falls. This bug paired with your favorite caddis nymph has been a game changer.
