I haven't tied Clouser-style flies since going after Bones a couple of years ago with Crazy Charlies and Gotchas.

Let me think about it a little more.

It's funny that you mention Shad Run and Gotchas in the same post. One of the top Shad Flys during the Delaware River Shad run is a Gotcha style fly tied with chartreuse calf tail , Flashabou, crystal flash and bead chain eyes. Took a bunch of fish on that pattern once they got above Dingmans Ferry!
