The Bellyache Minnow is a bite-sized streamer that fishes well on the strip as well as on a dead drift
The bellyache minnow is heavily weighted in the body area, and covered up nicely with two colors of ice dubbing. This minnow imitation rides hook up, making it a little more versatile than traditional patterns– For example you can jerk-strip it, jig it, or dead drift it without it getting caught up in grassy areas like you would find on the lower Madison. Size: 4 (fly is around two inches long). The bellyache minnow is available in natural or olive.
