Fonzi Fry – Ted Kraimer


Each year as millions of salmon eggs turn into salmon, both steelhead and trout take notice and advantage of these naive, freshly hatched “minnows.” I originally developed this fry pattern for steelhead, but it didn’t take long for the trout to convince me they like it too, making it a staple in my fly box.

Materials needed:

Hook: TMC 2457 #8
Thread: Gray Uni 6/0
Tail: Grizzly Marabou
Body: Ice Dub – pearl
Thorax: Ice Dub- pearl
Collar: Teal Feather
Eyes: Bead Chain – Black, Small
Back: Ice Dub – peacock
