Clouser Minnow #2


Read the whole article on the Susquehanna River

Most people know that the Susquehanna River was the birthplace of the Clouser minnow. Bob Clouser's shop in Middletown is a must stop if you visit the area. Just about any color combination is successful at one time or another. My favorites are olive over white, chartreuse over white, gray over white, and brown over orange.

Love the clouser minnow my 2 favorites are all white with white lead eyes, or chartreuse over white with red lead eyes both have caught many a bass for me.

I have used clouser's for every thing from trout to blue gills. I like to use pearle braid on the hook shank and I tie in some flash before I tie in the buck tail.
