As part of my You Tube channel revamp I have revised my Clouser Minnow tying Video. My version deviates slightly from the original tying by the great man Mr Bob Clouser but is no no less effective ! Enjoy…
Bob Clouser gave us the Clouser Minnow, which is probably the most common Saltwater fly in use today. A generic pattern that will catch most Saltwater species. It can be tied a few different ways with a variety of materials, but I personally like to keep it simple. I call these Fish Candy….
These are an excellent choice for when the Bass or other predators are smashing tiny baitfish, the materials used are very translucent giving a very realistic representation of immature fry. Tied on a size 4 Daiichi hook, these are around 2.5 inches long.
Been tying a lot with natural materials lately so I thought it was time to change to synthetics. I tied this one up as a Roach pattern for Pike fishing, but it would work equally well for salt water species as it resembles the peanut bunker type saltwater patterns.
These Bucktail Sandeels are weighted so they sink positively and fish in the zone where the fish would expect to find them. Tied on a size 2 Daiichi stainless hook they are approx. 3.5 inches long, just the right size for a marauding predator !
