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.

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.
