Franke Shiner

From the vise of famed Catskill tier Floyd Franke, this little Minnow shiner fly pattern was designed as a minnow imitation and has been catching fish for years in the Northeast. This minnow pattern is a must for any streamer box. In olive/blue. In sizes: 4, 6, 8, 10

"I was looking for this type of pattern to fish near Wachusett reservoir in Mass. Smelt and golden shiners are a key forage over there so I knew it would do well when the current is moving fast. Didn't miss a hit on the swing nice pattern, hooks and material held up just fine after hauling in four fish on the first day I used it."

from Hanover, PA.
"The quality of this Franke Shiner streamer is excellent! The craftsmanship is superb and I am very pleased. This is one of the reasons that I continue to procure Orvis products as I am always sure that the quality will be at the highest level. Cannot wait to tie this puppy on my leader and give these PA trout a chance to consume."
