Clouser Minnow pattern for Spring

Reaction score
Fredericksburg, Va.
With Spring approaching I needed some new minnow patterns in my box. I would like to share the traditional pattern which is pretty easy to tie. I love this pattern when the top just isn't producing and I have some deep water to play in. Tying this pattern uses very little material and a couple cow tails and some barrel eyes yields a bunch of flies. This pattern is also easy to tie a weed guard in to fish the bottoms and weed beds. I hope you enjoy.
