Minnow - tied with grouse hackles
« on: 20/07/2021 at 14:42 »
So, having gotten some nice grouse hackles from Cookshill I thought they would make a nice 'body' for a wee streamer to imitate a minnow.
3 materials - couple of turns of predator hackle for the tail, 4 grouse hackles for the body and some eyes

Looks great. Do like the look of grouse hackles, especially when tied that way.

I have found a grouse Ordie to be very effective.

Not tried one with a pink tail, do like a WOIGO head hackle though.
