Default Re: My first Clouser...

better than that here are the instructions given to me by Bob himself. if you look at the pics you can see that the eyes are placed at least 1/3 back from eye, therefor giving the fly a dipping/darting configuration instead of being mounted further forward where it will cause a jigging motion. This is how Bob explained to me in 1999 when he wrote the instructions.
also note where he ties the material down in front of the eyes keeping it away from being bound down tight to eyes.
I rest my case !

Yes you did -- I'll just have to live with my shame for the next few days .

BTW -- "Clouser" minnows with a jigging action catch the hell out of the fish at times, lol. I don't feel bad saying it, because it's not like I'm destroying his pattern or something.

You could tie up a new one and put the eyes wherever you damn well please.

Then start a new thread and ask us what we think of the new "Thoreson" minnow.

LOL, if you want to try this thing out anytime soon around here, you better put the eyes forward, or we're gonna need a Ditch Witch Ice Trencher fish it.
