I have been raving about this fly for years now. They are one of the best and most diverse bait-fish streamers I have ever fished. They have proven their worth on big trout, bass, salmon...and just about every other species we can find to throw them to! Rob Kolanda just got back from the East Coast chasing blues and stripers (disguised as a family vacation) and fished these Bellyache Minnows almost exclusively.
