Tying tip. 
After you have formed the body taper whip finish and remove the brown thread and start the orange thread behind the bead.  Starting the orange thread before wrapping and tying off the ribs allows you to form nice neat collar and helps maintain the even taper. 
Best fished within a foot of the bottom, either under and indicator or on a naked line.

This pattern can be fished using a variety of presentation methods depending on the present conditions.  My favorite method to fish the balanced minnow is under a strike indicator with a slow hand twist retrieve. 

May 2021

Hook:  2xl Curved nymph- Sz 16-12

Body: MFC Mini barred marabou-yellow barred brown
Rib: Gold wire-Small
Wingcase: Pheasant tail -Tan

Flashback: Gold mylar tinsel -medium
Be sure to tie a few up with a Gold bead sized appropriately to the hook. This will give the fly a faster sink rate.  A great pattern for both moving and stillwaters.  Floating, clear intermediate are my prefered lines for fishing this fly.
