Notes/Steps

The cups on the front of these flies allow them to wiggle as a real minnow when they are striped back in. If you fold the cups back over the head of the fly they will dive up & down as they are striped in. These cups are proto types that came from switzerland from a friend I made at the San Mateo flyfishing show in California. I have used these type of flies in larger sizes for sailfish and Dorado, Tuna, and Marlin, Pargo snappers in Costa Rica In the estuaries along the mangroves.

Wow! I really like that one. I'd be interested in a little more info on the availability of the cups and glow-n-dark material.

Great Fly Dave. I'm going to have to order some of those cups and put some together.
