Wiggling Minnow

Wiggling Minnow
Tying this for a friend, who likes to hunt our 'Sebarau' ( Hampala )... he wanted a minnow pattern which wiggle like Articulate Bait-fish but much lighter and smaller.. 
So I combine my leech pattern with another minnow pattern... 
taking the advantage of soft movement of marabou in the water, as additional wiggling element...  here is the wiggling minnow which is about 3" ( 7cm ) in length and slender shape... a close imitation to the Snakehead fry, the favorite color and pattern for hunting big Sebarau. 

 Material List


Hook - Gamakatsu B10S size 1 or 2
Tail - Yellow dye Marabou
Body - Palmer Chenille fro Wapsi
Marker, epoxy eye, 62lbs hard wire and Gel Glue
Diamond UV Resin 


Step by step tying instruction 

  Cut a pcs of hard wire 4cm in length, bend to the shape

 Tie down the wire shank, tie in some marabou

 Tie in 2 Palmer Chenille, here I mix gray and yellow

 Wind in the Palmer Chenille, tie down... trim the extra and whip finish

The complete wiggling section

 Cut a hard wire about 6cm, bend to shape and tie down to the hook

Put in the wiggling section to the loop. tie down and apply some Diamond UV cure resin

  Again, tie in the Palmer Chenille

 Wind in the chenille, tie down and trim the extra. 


Trim the chenille fiber to shape like a minnow

 Apply the desire color

 Drop some Gel Glue and stick on the eye... 

 OK... now the Wiggling Minnow is ready... 
let Dance baby..!!

You may mix with different color of Palmer Chenille and marker to create your desire minnow pattern... 

Cheers and Happy Tying
