Modified Clouser Minnow Fly Tying Video

This is a simple modification to a classic pattern that will increase your landing ratio!  A Clouser Minnow is a great pattern for many applications where fish are feeding on baitfish. This is a fly we commonly cast for salmon through the summer when they are feeding in the ocean.  The use of a short, shanked hook and the ability for it to twist and move around on the tailer make it tough for the fish to throw during the fight.
