Lingcod Clouser Minnow - We all have favorites and this is my favorite un-conventional Clouser because I rarely see fellow saltwater anglers using orange and black as principle color combinations in their Clousers. I chose these colors with juvenile rockfish in mind but I would be loathe to claim that a black Rockfish or Ling cod thinks that this fly, specifically, is that baby bottom-fish when inhaling it somewhere in the depths below the Dory where I am bracing my knees and patiently strip-retrieving. Whatever. The fly looks beautiful and the fish eat it; what more do I need to know.
