Everybody has their favorite version of a guide style minnow for warm water species. This tutorial is brought to you by Brandon Bailes and American Made Flies. I really like the size of this fly, it is manageable so you don’t need to have a 6 or 7 weight on hand to throw it. That means you can remain versatile on the stream and transition to this fly when the time calls for it.
