    Default HH Minnow!

    Not to be confused with the SS Minnow, Ive been searching for the right material to make some salt water flies, Baitfish to be exact. And score I found these heads in Homer while i was there brought them back and headed to Mt. View sports to find some material to add to them, id have to say im pretty impressed and was so excited to see what it looked like i tied one in the store. Enjoy

    will the above work for you? Similar, but I do not think these are quite as large as yours, plus yours are multi-colored.

    I'd like to find the plastic ones. I was trying to engineer a way to mold them and make a lighter weight version.

    Brownbear, don't think those are the ones. I posted the same/similar above (post #2), but he is looking for the head made out of plastic, not metal. A plastic head sure would be nice to tie with.
