Litebrite Minnow
1 Attachment(s)
I experimented with litebrite over the weekend and came up with this minnow. Its a simple to tie pattern similiar, to one I saw Jack Gartside tie at a show.

hook: #6 mustad 3366 or Tmc ????
thread: White
tail & body: pearl Litebrite

Tie in a hunk of litebrite for a tail, dub a body then tie off the thread. Pick out the dubbing with a bodkin then comb out the litebrite and trim to shape. Finish off by coloring as desired with a marker.

That's a purdy fly. When you say to dub a body, do you mean using the Litebrite as a dubbing as well as the tail?

Yes, both the tail & body are litebrite. I'll toss the fly in the box of flys as a meister fly for the warmwater fly.
