Isolation Tying Sessions: Wiggle Minnow

The wiggle minnow is a versatile pattern that I like to use when fishing for bream.  I usually fish it with a slow roll on an intermediate line and count down the line to the required depth.  The fly has a tight shimmy action and suspends in the water column.
