Stacked Simi Seal Minnow (aka - Mullet Minnow)


High and Tight on the top, Looong in back...



Mullet Minnow
Hook - Gamakatsu SC15 (#2,#4, or #6)
Lead - ~14 wraps of .15 lead or non-tox.
Thread - C&C TSP Nylon
Tail - Starlight Simi Seal
Body is created using Andy Burk's "stack dubbing" technique.
Under Body - Starlight Simi, Pearl Ice Dub, White Antron.
Over Body - Hand Mix to suit pattern.
Eyes - Holo Eyes.

(Over Body - Peacock, Bronze Peacock Simi, Black Antron, Black Halo Dub.)


(Over Body - Chartreuse, Red, Crawdad Simi, Bright Orange, Pink, Yellow Halo Dub.)


(Over Body - Canadian Olive, Crawdad, Bronze Peacock Simi, Brown UV Ice Dub.)



For anyone who likes Enrico Puglisi style flies and material but doesn't like the price tags that go with it... I have found Simi Seal to be just as good, much cheaper and available in better blends and colors (especially once you hand blend! )

Mods can I get this moved to the "Open Box" forum?


Thanks Josh

Very nice, Josh. I now make longer *** if you want to extend the bodies for more movement. Let me know if you want some special colors and I can square you away. Love doing that kind of stuff!

Thanks Dub. I have been hand chopping some DHM and Minnow hair for the bigger flies and it works just as well. I may take you up on that special blend. I am still working out the mix ratio on the Chartreuse (think Fire Tiger). Also barring or making stripes with Cobalt Blue DHM and Black Simi makes for a killer salt pattern. I am sending a dzn up to my Brother in HI to try out on the Peacocks and toothy critters in the salt.

Zach, this pattern is supper easy and I know you have the materials.. I would be happy to show you it sometime.

Thanks Josh

Glad to hear you're getting some, Zach. Off to Rosey tomorrow. Daryl landed a 5 1/2 lb smallie yesterday. He hooked it three times and it broke him off. Finally landed her, weighed her and let her go...after he got his fly back. Lake's on fire.

Anyone have any info on how to do this stack dubbing technique? I have a feeling I could make a good imitation of a tiny gill doing that. Would be PERFECT for those bass at research that like to chase those tiny gills on teh shore. Speaking of which I caught a ton of gills out of there today that had scars from bass harassment.
