The Story

Enrico Puglisi has carved out a well-earned reputation in the fly-fishing community for his innovative and effective baitfish imitations. With the Puglisi Floating Minnow, he has raised the bar once again. With a realistic profile, unparalleled underwater movement, and added weed guard, this fly mimics the type of forage fish predators frequently prey upon, both in salt and fresh water. In gray/white, mullet.

Sizes: 1, 2/0.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed a Replacement I had used one of these flies for two years in saltwater. I caught dozens of small strippers and several bluefish: the original file was destroyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appear perfect as small to medium minnow. Will be using these on baby tarpon in the Yucatan in mid August. The size and colors look perfect. A lot of the fishing is done on the fringe of grass beds, so the week guard should be perfect. Can't wait to try these babies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spring stripers Nailed schoolies one day with this on cape cod. Not for foul water, its a weed magnet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! Find a Tarpon pod, put this floating minnow on the fishes nose and hold on. Always has been a very effective tarpon fly for me in Belize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deceptive This floating minnow is fantastic. Looks real and the quality I. The hair is superb. Floats on the surface like a minnow in trouble....and that attracts fish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EP Floating Minnow I saw this new pattern on the web site and had to get one (even at the relatively high price). The fly is tied on a quality saltwater hook in the standard EP shape using the synthetic EP fibers. I have not tried it on the water yet because of the weather, but looks like it would be great in shallow water. With its bouyancy and weed guard, it should not get hung in the grass.
