size 2 rear, 35mm shank, Size 1 Front.
The XL Eyelash Minnow was a natural progression from the original. I wanted a bigger profile, more movement, and greater overall length. Adding a central shank causes the fly to have a jerky slithering action. The front third of the fly incorporates a longer eyelash yarn that bulks up the front of the fly and increases the tail swimming action. by using multiple strands of different yarns in the body, Eylash Minnows have a mottled flashy appearance that really draws attention from predatory fish without being over the top or unnatural. This fly is quickly becoming a go to for anglers hunting that trout of a lifetime. The unique body and action of this fly means that you are showing fish something that they haven't already seen a thousand times, and that fact alone can be enough to tip the scales in your favor.
