The Clouser minnow is a legendary fly that catches fish in salt- and freshwater. In my experience, it's particularly deadly when used for smallmouth bass. The colour combo shown above is just about as good as it gets in the waters in and around central Ontario.
The genius of this pattern is that it offers a sleek and lively minnow profile while riding hook point up so it can be worked among the boulders and drop offs and jigged deeper if need be. So simple and versatile, the Clouser is truly a work of fly design genius.
