Clouser Floating Minnow

Detailed instructions for Bob Clouser's floating minnow. This fly excels in situations where fish are reluctant to hit a noisier surface fly but still want a surface silhouette. Designed for smallmouth bass but highly effective for predatory gamefish the world over. Slide it slowly across the surface or twitch it near structure and hold on.
