Is this the ultimate baitfish imitation? Well... it's certainly a good all purpose tiny minnow pattern. An adaptation of Chris Stewart's original, tied in "Small Stream size, and intended for Trout, Crappie & Sculpin fishing.

It's basically an unweighted killer bugger in white Shetland Wool, with a white Marabou Tail tied with a Bright Red silk under-body. It displays a life-like form when wet creating a pink inner minnow appearance, with a tiny touch of added flash. Unweighted on a size #16 x-long hook (Tungsten beadhead also available).
Imitates a tiny shiner. Early in the morning, begin by wiping it in the algae to pick up some stream scent & hide yours. Visit Chris Stewart - Tenkara Bum for more on his Sculpin fishing experiences.
For trout, cast toward the shore, near logs & under trees and manipulate with small tugs like an escaping baitfish. If you don't hook a fish but get a follow, you will know where he lives. Return later with a different fly like a soft hackle sakasa. Or cast across & downstream, "Wet Fly" style.
Sold as three flies. My super durable, last nearly forever design.
