Re: My first Clouser...
I like your first Clouser, as well as the second. They can be tied all kinds of ways & all are fine. Depends on what you need them to do as far as the jigging action. That first one should ride a bit more horizontal than the second. Smaller eyes can also be used along with positioning to change the amount of jigging.
Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!
