Tied up a slightly different version of my Mallard Minnow. Instead of using some of my Cookies n cream ice dub blend, I swapped it for a palmered light Olive streamer brush from "Fishient H2O Just add water" along the hook shank. Then covered with three Mallard flank feathers as well as add a splash of red for the chin/gill area. I kept these short around 45mm - 50mm in length because I want to use them as cross over flies in both Salt and fresh water conditions.
I'm not that convinced with the 5 mm eyes though and might go with the 2mm size the next time I tie a batch of these up.
