Hangtime Optic Minnow

This is my effort at tying Brad Bohen's "hangtime optic minnow" musky fly. AWESOME fly, great video Clear Cure Goo posted of Brad tying it. I couldn't help myself and had to give it a whirl. Had a lot of fun tying it and looking forward to putting it in front of some Musky. My SBS pales in comparison to his video, but I figured Id document what materials I used since I did not have everything in his pattern. Enjoy.
