I added Looper's Spineless Minnow to the fly tying page. It's an ingenious pattern that doesn't require a ton of material and has good movement that the bass love. This is the way I tie it and the material I use but there are several different materials you can substitute. You can check out more of Looper's flies at http://rusuperfly.com . Tie a couple up and I bet you'll put a few fish in the net.
