When outdoor writer Norm Zeigler was in Boulder to do a program for the Boulder Flycasters/Front Range Anglers he talked a bit about his Schminnow pattern developed for Snook fishing on Sanibel Island in Florida.
It's an attractor pattern that "looks like a cross between a shrimp and a glass minnow with a bit of sand flea thrown in."
Because it's un-weighted, it lands softly and swims a few inches below the surface on a floating line. Stripping in line at various speeds causes the fly to dance enticingly through the water.
