Glass minnows are small, see through fish that are a food source for many predatory fish. These flies are see through, but I add a few things on the hook shank to mimic the insides of small fry or glass minnows. I also use a UV curing resin to make a small head on the fly and make sure it stays together well even though many hard hits from toothy fish. This fly is tied on a smaller hook than most of my glass minnows, because I plan on using this one for trout on my local river. Even though we don't have "glass minnows" on that river, there are small fish that this could mimic very well.
