I'm not one to blow my own trumpet in fact I'm generally very humble but this is one of my fly patterns I'm proud of, nobody over here was tying baitfish patterns on jig hooks and tungsten beads, these were tied for fast rips that just spit a nymph out. A couple of people saw them when I posted them on Facebook a few years ago so I tied a few and handed them out for testing. One of them was that impressed by the reaction they get from the trout that he used them in a feature for a magazine Total Fly Fisher, they never really had a name but got called Martins minnow in the magazine and the name stuck. They've undergone a couple of tweaks in the last couple of years but are at the point that there just perfect as is.
For running water trout I'd happily put this up against your wooly buggers and such like as the trout just hammer them, there also great for perch and I've had several pike on them also. With a larger bead there perfectly castable on ul spinning tackle

I've no problems tying them for forum members fishin' fatty with the conversion rates etc they'd be $3.54 each. Always sounds like a lot when I convert GBP to USD I know people who sell dry flies for not a lot less over here though.

I do have a tying video on YouTube if you have a vice etc, it's not the best video as I'd finished a 12hr nightshift but it's fully instructional to the point that anyone who's never tied with synthetics could pick some up and do a decent job of replicating it
