    Yes sir, well sort of... not the actual Leisenring spinnings, but I do pre-spin and store my wet fly and nymph bodies in the same fashion that Leisenring/Hidy/Hughes all practice and preach.

    We got into a pretty good discussion on this topic in a Share Patterns thread for a Diving Caddis pattern that I posted last year. Check it out... the bodies and spinning block are shown on replay #12.

    Some great looking streamers, guys! I knew I should have joined this one, I wouldn't have to tie a streamer for a couple years.

    No worries Frank, they're not Glitzy until they have a fish attached to them . If you catch fish on yours I'm happy to have one.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    A baker's dozen Shad Clousers:



    Shad Clouser

    Hook: Eagle Claw 202ELA, #8, gold
    Thread: Veevus, 10/0, white
    Eyes: Spirit River Dazl-eyes, 1/8", gold
    Belly: Orvis Super Hair, white
    Lateral line: Krystal Flash, pearl
    Back: Orvis Super Hair, sea foam

    These small Clousers are pretty sparsely dressed because Shad like thin patterns with a lot of gold showing; with the Super Hair bodies you can see right through them to the hook. The body materials are not tied back beyond the eyes and the bodies are somewhat shortened due to the fact that Atlantic Shad often short-strike.

    I tie them in a bunch of different back colors; incuding chartreuse, dark blue and red. For me, the sea foam green always works the best, though.

    I used this pattern with good success last season on Atlantics and even got a couple of Smallies to go for it when I accidentally drifted above the brackish water and into the fresh.

    They'll go out in tomorrow's mail.

    Got my Big-Nose Rattle Clousers finished today, so they should hit the post tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. These aren't the prettiest flies you'll ever cast, but the fish will know they're there, no matter how stained the water is!
    Cheers,

    Just to let everyone know, I left the flash a little long so you can trim to your own likings.
