Tie Connor’s Jerk Minnow

1 comment / Posted on / by


This deceptively simple fly is all about the action.

Connor Jones, from Cohutta Fishing Company, ties this versatile baitfish pattern for bass and trout here in the southeast. It’s a simple fly with a clean profile and it’s easy to tie in a variety of colors.

The secret to the jerk minnow is it’s action. Connor builds a hard, hollow head, from Senyo’s Laser dub and Clear Cure Hydro, which captures air and gives the jerk minnow an erratic darting action, when stripped hard. Big predatory fish can’t resist it

It’s a fly that will produce fish on lakes and rivers. Tie it in the colors and size to match the forage species on your local waters. Strip hard and hang on tight!

  1. Conner is one of those BA fisherman that always keeps it real and humble. Great guide and tier. This pattern will get the work done. Great way to start out my Friday morning. Wish I was on the water and not in the office.
