Bent minnow fly?

I've caught hundreds of bream on bent minnow lures. It has been one of my go to lures during the warmer months. Not only are they very effective, to my mind, nothing beats catching bream on the surface.

I love my fly fishing too. If you think catching bream on lures is a challenge and you like a challenge then give fly fishing for them a go.

After doing extensive research on the subject, I haven't been able to find a fly that even comes close to duplicating the action of a bent minnow lure, so I decided to try to come up with my own design.

It has been an ongoing project. I make and test a certain design, only to think of something that will make it work or look a little better.

Anyway, this is my latest attempt. It works pretty well, but it has just a fraction too much buoyancy.
