Keep it simple

by Brian Zinger on March 5, 2018

Sometimes, great flies are simple to tie. Flies that only require 3 materials that are easy to work with, and only take 3-4 minutes are my kinda fly. The Mikey Finn is that kind of fly. Besides a hook and thread, Red and yellow buck tail, and flat tinsel is all that’s required.

I like fishing Micky Finns early and late season. I think they are most effective in 3 and 1 inch versions and trailed behind an anchor type nymph or other streamer. When brookies are chasing streamer a mini Micky is deadly. In the fall, landlocked salmon are known to be fooled as well.
