    Drive it like you stole it! Half the fun of getting there is not knowing your going to make it?

    Noob question, what distinguishes a clouser from regular? I have been researching patterns but do not notice the difference.

    Clouser are usually tied wit a sparse clump of material in front of the eyes and then tied back of the eyes with a sparse clump of material tie on the bottom of the hook shank and left loose behind the eye or not tied in behind the eyes.

    Think of bait fish flys that more represent a fish like thisbait fish.jpg

    Does a Black Nose Dace qualify?

    If so that's my choice - it works on the bass in our lake.

    Is it a Clouser? If not then yes!

    Clousers are tied with barbell eyes. And the hair is not tied behind the eyes on top. That is their distinguishing characteristic.
