While it may look like an attractor, it’s actually an imitation of the widespread Black Nose Dace (or Blacknose Dace) minnow. The real minnow has a black stripe, with varying degrees of red underneath. An easy to tie, traditional bucktail pattern, it has made a resurgence along with the rising popularity of retro-streamers.
