Have been playing around a little over the weekend with this Mallard minnow fly. I steered away from using a dubbing body for these two patterns by using up the remainder of the Light Olive and Shrimp coloured streamer brushes I had lying around.
I used the light Olive streamer brush for these four flies with a natural mallard flank feather for the sides and a Tan mallard flank for the shoulders. Total length of flies 30 mm
And I used the Shrimp coloured brush and Natural mallard flank all round on this set of four flies. Also 30 mm in length.
