When I showed my friend Rob the Bent-Head streamer, he went and tied it a different way…and it worked! I had experimented with smaller Bent-Heads using a deer hair head, but they didn’t swim/dive like the standard version. Rob’s flies- utilizing a wool head- still would dive, but also had a little faster sink rate when left to drift. Thus, the Mini Bent-Head was born. This fly only comes in one size and is about 1 7/8″ long, and a lot less bulky than the standard size. It’s great for working through shallow riffles and along bank side structure. I catch a lot of fish on this very early in the season, when the water temps are low and fish are sluggish.
The Mini Bent-head is available in 3 colors: cream, black and olive/yellow.
Remember to specify color when ordering.
Price: $5.00 each
