Murray's Floating Minnows
I developed the Dace Floating Minnow to mimic the natural dying dace minnows found along the sides of the river. Dress it with fly floatant and cast it across stream tight against the banks. Fish it out ten feet by stripping it four inches every ten seconds. Make successive casts every ten feet further down the stream.
Murray's Floating Chub Minnow is one of the most productive flies I have ever developed. At dusk wade into the upper end of the riffles and turn to wade and fish upstream into the tail of the pool above. Fan your casts across the water above. Use a line hand stripping action to swim it slightly faster than the current. Be patient because you will often see a large bass coming from ten feet away to take this fly. Just do not take it away from him.
