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.
Materials Used
Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 (but use what you like)
Thread: Flat waxed nylon
Throat: Red crystal flash
Body/tail: 2 colours of Bucktail with flash between
Head:2 Foam bug bodies
Eyes: flat tape eyes
Top coat: UV resin or epoxy mixed with fine glitter.

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.
