The Story

A modern classic fly, nothing imitates the flash and movement of a natural minnow quite like softy minnow flies. Even its big eyes help attract fish and get vicious strikes. Strip it, twitch it, and hang on, this is one go-to minnow fly you want on hand.

Sizes 2, 6. Length 3, 2".

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no action Looked good out of the water, but it has no action on the retrieve. There are better options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was a skeptic at first. Had never really used a bait like this, but it quickly turned me into a believer. Between crappie and walleye this lure has done very well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent "Fly" These work on everything from tarpon and snook to large- and smallmouth bass and lots in between! Very effective fly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Eyes that does the trick. Effective for False Albacore in size #2 and Bonefish in size #6. When Albies are a bit disbursed the Softy Minnow will get hard takes. The oversize eyes are a key attraction. Downside is the hook could be harder with a wider gap and after a while the plasticizer can cause a black tar like deposit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good Most feedback was pertaining to other species but I'm going to try this on trout. Haven't done so yet but it does look realistic. I purchased the smaller size version and I think it should do well. May get chewed up and lose its luster but what good fly doesn't?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gummies for Tarpon Bought these for a trip to Belize that included lagoon fishing for Tarpon. I thought size 2 would be too small but that was all I could find. Perfect size to match the bait fish there. Boated a 40 pounder on one of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Bought this fly for fishing tarpon in the light. The fly worked on a few tarpon but I feel the action on the fly is not that great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lame.. There's no action to this fly. It's basically a piece of thin rubber sheeting with tinsel hot glued to a hook. After a few casts the adhesive started coming undone and the fly began peeling apart.. I won't be purchasing anymore of these..
