Clouser Deep Minnow
For this fly tying tutorial, I share a pattern that needs little introduction, Bob Clouser's famous fly, the Clouser Deep Minnow. This is a "go-to" for most fly fisherman, and with good reason: It catches fish! I share a few tips to employ when tying this pattern, plus various pieces of information I learned from Mr. Clouser during his demonstrations.
Featured in this tutorial are saltwater hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; I recommend these due to the fact that even if you fish freshwater, when the opportunity to fish saltwater arises, you will have flies ready to go. These hooks can be found at the following link: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/sw002-saltwater/
