MGM at the next TFF meeting, 2014-01-28
« on: January 22, 2014, 06:39:06 AM »
I have been asked to tie the Mardi Gras Minnow, so at the next meeting I plan to tie this fly.

Here is the recipe:
Gama stinger hook, size 2 (or Mustad 34007, size 2)
Size "A" rod wrapping thread, color to match craft fur
Round Mardi Gras beads, red, green, blue, or black
Clear finger nail polish (CA glue will work in a snap, but not prefered)
White, or other light color craft fur
Krystal flash or equiv
Metalic sharpie(R), gold or silver

I'm going to ask for somebody to video the tying.  Any volunteers?

MGM = Mardi Gras Minnow, so named because of the material used for the eyes.

Since we had an "ice-out" at the last meeting, I will be tying the MGM at the February meeting.
