Articulated Sparkle Minnow Fly Pattern Tutorial

Coffey's Sparkle Minnow is a fly that I always have in my streamer box. It works. There is no need to substitute materials or change anything about it. I do like articulated flies and using the new Spawn Fly Fish bent shanks it makes it soooo easy. There are a few other tweaks added to the fly to help with profile, but the key is to build that taper as you progress through the body to the head of the fly.
