Burk's Hot Flash Minnow

Andy Burk, one of the most innovative and well-respected fly tiers today, wanted to create a true, multi-purpose baitfish pattern with plenty of flash and lifelike realism. After getting his hands on some Angel Hair, one of the best new tying materials on the market, the Hot Flash Minnow was born. The logic to this fly pattern's versatility is quite simple: The fly looks and acts like a live bait fish in the water, which is truly enticing to every saltwater game fish. In shad, shiner, anchovy, mackerel. Size: 1/0. Length 3¾".

"Great for stripping over weed beds in lakes. Fly runs top foot of water. Great for Bass or trout."

"I picked up several of these flies before going to the NC beaches to fish in the surf. They seem to have a nice pattern and size to them. I found that while fishing I had a little trouble even seeing which "fish" was mine because it blended in so well with the baby mackerel and other fish. Great quality fly. Well recommended."
