These Flies are genuine Hal Janssen Minnows made to Hal's personal specifications, not some cheap, inferior African knock-off.

Hal Janssen created the Jannsen Minnow series to replicate small forage fish that trout and bass feed on. Trout can be cannibalistic, feeding on their own young or the offspring of other trout species. Bass feed on young trout where both species occur in the same water. Both trout and bass will feed on shad.

Real Janssen Minnows are complex and time-consuming to tie. Mylar tubing is pulled over a fish-shaped cardboard form, which has been attached to the hook with tying thread. This becomes the body of the fly. Mylar tubing is then is pulled over this cardboard form and hand painted with the background colors of the fish it is meant to represent. Blushes, spots, dots and eyes are added in great detail. A coat of epoxy is then applied and let harden with a smooth, glossy finish. A short, dense marabou tail completes the fly and adds swimming action.

Janssen Minnows are easy to cast and they sink quickly. Order some before your next trip.
