The Story

Andy Burk, one of the most innovative and well-respected fly tiers today, wanted to create a true, multi-purpose baitfish pattern with plenty of flash and lifelike realism. After getting his hands on some Angel Hair, one of the best new tying materials on the market, the Hot Flash Minnow was born. The logic to this fly pattern's versatility is quite simple: The fly looks and acts like a live bait fish in the water, which is truly enticing to every saltwater game fish. In anchovy, mackerel.

Size: 1/0. Length 3¾".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smallie crusher These are some of my go to smallie flies, they absolutely crush them. These flies have nice stout hooks, great flash, and great profile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fish magnet! The stripers are getting bigger so I was looking for a bigger fly to throw and this did the trick! Throwing it into any of the rips on an intermediate 9wt line and it sits just right. Good movement in the water and very durable so far. Glad I bought two to have one as a backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First striper on a fly with Burks Hot Flash Minnow First time ever fishing for stripers. I put this one on and second cast later, I had my first striper on a fly rod wading out from the beach.
