it a fly? Definitely crosses some lines! Inspired by soft plastic freshwater
baits, the new
gummy minnows are some of the coolest baitfish imitations to come down
the pike in years. As far as fly fishing goes, you really haven't seen
anything like it! Designed for smallmouth but it works great on largemouth,
saltwater fish, trout and just about anything else that eats a minnow! Tied
on stainless saltwater hooks just like the Clouser Minnows,
Gummy Minnows are made with new Sili Skin and designed by Blane Chocklet
for Umpqua Feather Merchants.
The size 2 is good for bass, saltwater and other large gamefish and is
featured on the top row of the picture here. The size 6 works well for trout
and smallmouth and other medium sized gamefish. Our favorite little Gummy
Minnows, the Mini-Gummies in size 8, are fantastic bluegill and crappie
Sili Skin is a new, breakthrough material with uses only limited
by a tyer's imagination. Currently used in Umpqua Feather Merchants'
Chocklett's Gummy Minnow Series. This material is ideal for creating
extremely realistic and effective baitfish patterns. Comes in two 2" X 6"
strips of transluscent one-sided adhesive, with instructions on general use.
If you tie baitfish patterns for saltwater, bass or trout, you should give
this revolutionary material a try. Comes in a variety of colors and also
includes instructions on tying the new Gummy Minnows.
