This little streamer started life as a mistake, but has since proved its worth many times over

The Mini-Brown streamer came about due to a dumb mistake. I was supposed to be copying the Professor wet fly, but I misplaced my sample and tied the fly from memory instead. The result was this little streamer, which has turned out to be a dynamite little pattern for both trout and panfish. I also tie it in a Mini-Brookie and a Mini-Bow version.
