Floating Minnow Family
I really like top water action, especially when I go fishing at night in my home waters for Striper. Seeing this Floating Minnow create a "V" wake and the explosion of the Striper taking the fly is simply breathtaking. Another effective way to fish the Floating Minnow is with intermediate fly line "strip and stop." At the stop of your retrieve you will give the fly the time to float towards the surface; this is the time when the fish is most likely to strike. You should use long leader, at least 12 inches.
