Pav’s Shimmer Swimmer
Think of this fly as an improved Sparkle Minnow. Bright day, bright streamer, as the saying goes. This silvery and white baby fish imitation is sure to entice a lunker. Pounding the banks from a boat is my favorite way to fish it, however fishing it on stillwater is very effective as well. When stocked rainbows get dropped in the lake they become part of the menu for those bigger predatory fish. Swim this fly like a wounded bait fish and don’t miss the aggressive take.
