Attempt at Rosy Reds

RE: Attempt at Rosy Reds
They are a color phase of the fathead minnows. I have used the bait itself and it is a very effective live bait. Their actual color is hard to imitate as I have tried many times. Another nickname for them is goldies. As they do have a slight goldish tint to them and are slightly opaque.

First time I ever seen them was trout fishing in PA. We were using emerald shiners and managed with them. Later on when available I have tried them on other species and they work excellent. Down side is they are more expensive them normal fatheads and usually only available during first month of trout season over in PA. I live close to PA stateline so often fish in western PA.

Great-looking tie. Icon14

Am a bit of a believer in providing a pattern that's at least a little bit different from the natural forage.  I do like reverse countershading patterns on lure bodies (think Crankbait Corporation of yesteryear) and jigs for example.

Your jig will be a 'fish getter' as is.
