How To Tie The Peacock’s Eye Ice Dub Thin Mint: Fly Tying Video

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! We have our very first Tying Tuesday that falls on Christmas. We thought that this one looked like a Christmas Tree. 🙂 We hope you have a wonderful day today and enjoy this tie!

The traditional thin mint is tied with a little less work and a lot less flash. Depending on how or where you fish it, the thin mint can imitate a variety of things in the water. From small bait fish to leeches fish it how you want it. The standard thin mint is tied with olive, brown, and black as the tail, a peacock herl body, brown hackle, wire, and a gold bead. Spicing it up a little can change the way it fishes so make sure you know what’s at the end of your line.

Join us every week for Fly Tying Tuesday as we take on a new pattern!  Subscribe to our YouTube channel to see it first, and for all our other product, how-to, and fly fishing and outdoor videos.
