The Clouser crippled minnow (not the deep minnow) is number one for me ... it's just fun to fish

My most productive is a beadhead 'bugger

With smallies I like to match the water clarity rather than match the hatch
Colors like brown, gold, orange, chartruce in stained water
Bright colors like yellow, white, silver in clear

Clousers, generally small and sparsely tied, but with plenty of flash.

Also had good luck on conehead matuka zonker/kiwi zuddler type flies for larger smallies.

Olive woolly bugger is a confidence pattern for me, but I often throw a popper first. Clousers work well for me.

I just got Clouser's Flies for V-Day, so I'm looking forward to tying up a bunch of new patterns to try out this summer.

I would not go out without a "Sneeky Pete" slider. I use different flies some named in the thread but that is my fav. for big fish as well. It is the only fly I cannot tie that gives me the same results so I buy them. It's worth it!

We must be from the same neck of the woods. Shenandoah blue popper is hard to beat as far as fun goes. I also like Murray's Marauders, especially the pearl variety.
