Sparkle Minnow

$3.50

The Sparkle Minnow is a streamer pattern often recognized as “the one” as many believe it is the only baitfish or sculpin pattern you need in your streamer box! It has quickly become one of the most popular streamers in the west. To note, this is not the original recipe – we have substituted a dubbing brush for the dubbing loop. We believe this creates more pulsating action in the water, not to mention it limits bulk at the front of the fly. Hidden underneath the body of the fly is lead-free wire to help get the fly into the zone as quickly as possible. This is a simple and effective streamer pattern that continues to fool trout with its realistic movement and body taper. Our favorite colors to fish are black and olive.

Fishing Strategies:

The Sparkle Minnow like all other streamers imitates a baitfish, sculpin and or minnow. These meals provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one. You can swing, dead drift or strip it in and be successful. We typically fish the Sparkle Minnow pattern with a short leader terminating in 3X tippet. In most cases, we strip it with a traditional down and across delivery.

We have found that a slow retrieve produces the best results. We have had success all over the west with this perfectly weighted Sculpin pattern.
