I tie a very similar version using a jig style hook that I JB Weld a swivel to that I use to attach a willow leaf blade and then tie bucktail after the JB Weld has set, similar to a Clouser. I'ts deadly for smallmouth and even catfish. I use BIG hooks (#1, #2, etc) for warmwater species. Chartreuse, Orange and Green seem to be the best color combinations.
