BTW -- As I understand it, calling it a "Clouser" minnow is kind of a rip-off given that people were tying identical bucktail patterns with bead chain eyes for years before Bob Clouser added lead eyes to the same pattern and claimed the name.
I'm sure a lot of other patterns are like that though -- which should lead to a rule:
1. No naming any patterns after yourself.
