Clouser Minnow

One of the most famous baitfish patterns used in either freshwater or saltwater applications. Bob Clouser's creation has landed more species of fish than any other pattern that I can imagine. This version tied, is a shallow water fly that fishes really well for summer time Smallmouth Bass. The bead chain eyes allow for a slower sink rate and more control in low water conditions.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
