Thin Mint

$3.50

The Thin Mint is one of the classic trout streamers of our time and while the creator of the pattern is unknown, one thing that is for certain is this fly is a must-have! Since we discovered this pattern many years ago, it has become one of the most-loved and most-fished streamers in our fly box. It has a very similar profile to a Woolly Bugger or Autumn Splendor but, with a unique color combination. The Thin Mint has an excellent sink-rate with a tungsten bead and weighted wire. The tri-color marabou tail and peacock body create a flashy body that is irresistible to aggressive fish in the spring and fall.

Description

The Thin Mint is one of the classic trout streamers of our time and while the creator of the pattern is unknown, one thing that is for certain is this fly is a must-have! Since we discovered this pattern many years ago, it has become one of the most-loved and most-fished streamers in our fly box.

Fishing Strategy:

Minnows, baitfish, and leeches provide trout with more bang for their buck and they rarely refuse the opportunity to eat one. In most cases, we strip a Thin Mint with a traditional down and across the delivery. Although, we have found that a quick, short retrieve provides the best results. But, don’t be afraid to think outside the box from time to time and mix things up with a slower retrieve or a dead-drift presentation. Whether you are swinging it, stripping it, or dead-drifting it in smaller sizes the Thin Mint is a must-have and deserves a spot in any angler’s fly box.
