Patriot Clouser Minnow
This is a Clouser I sometimes refer to as the Patriot, because it incorporates Red, White, and Blue. Not going to explain that, you'll either get it or not and it doesn't make a difference either way. This Clouser has lured Chinook, Coho, Black Rockfish, and Ling Cod to my tippets, and I will always carry at least a few of these flies when I am near an estuary or in the ocean.
