The Ripple Ice Minnow is a classic fly with modern materials and it just doesn't get more simple than this effective pattern. The fly is tied on a Partridge of Redditch Attitude Extra 2/0 hook and features Ripple Ice Fiber from Hareline Dubbin. The synthetic material does not hold water but moves like bucktail in the current and maintains a nice profile without collapsing. The slight ripples in the material create a shimmer in the water that will definitely trigger a reaction from a predator.

This fly was exactly what I was looking for to put in front of some TN River smallmouth.
