CLOUSER FLOATING MINNOW VARIATION - Fly of the Week - June 28, 2010
CLOUSER FLOATING MINNOW VARIATION
This is a variation of a fly I first saw in Bob Clouser's book on tying and fishing the fly patterns of his. I used an Eagle Claw weed less*449WA - 1/0 hook. This for when bait fish are hiding in the grass along shore and bass are trying to eat them. It can also be used when fish are chasing bait fish in open water. The weed guard is not necessary in open water. The head is two white foam bug bodies glued together. When fishing with a fly rod with this type of weed guard, the guard must be adjusted. You want the hook point to penetrate, on the hook set, and the guard to keep it off the grass.
