Pearl Mylar tube
3D epoxy eye
UV Clear epoxy
Nylon line for belly
Step by step tying instructions:
Cut a short length of Pearl Mylar tube, heat it and apply with some tension to fuse and create a taper body
Few tapered Mylar tube body are ready
Prepare the belly with the nylon line / rope material ( I use the existing rope from the Mylar tube )
Color the belly with the marker
Insert in the Mylar tube to the hook and tie down
Put in a pair of 3D epoxy eye, apply the UV clear epoxy, rotate the fly to get an even coverage of epoxy
Dry up the epoxy with UV light, remember to rotate the fly.
The Mylar Minnow is ready. ( an Anchovies Fly / Ikan Billis pattern )
Always apply minimum epoxy, apply layers of epoxy to shape it.
Always rotate the fly to get an even coverage of epoxyYou may put in some color after you 1st coat of epoxy, to create different fry or minnow pattern
I believe there are many different Mylar Minnow can be created by using different diameter and different type of Mylar tube
