Pattern Description
The Mini Hot is the latest attractor offering from our own Greg Garcia. Gregor has cobbled together a great little pattern here, reminiscent of both a Stimulator and a Trude, some of the best attractor patterns out there. Greg has used a thin microtubing overbody to enhance the sheen and durability of the fly, a sparkling underwing of the new SLF Prism Dubbing and a buoyant wing of easy to spot bleached deer hock. Finishing the fly off is a juicy thorax palmered with a heavy hackle. This combination makes for a fly that is slim and subtle yet super floaty. Sometimes you want a pattern a bit smaller and less bushy as the season progresses, and the Mini Hot is the answer to all those fish that have seen a few too many Stimmies float over their heads. This is a pretty easy fly to tie and uses some of the newer materials here in the shop, so come on by or give us a shout and we will be happy to get you set up with the parts.
