A New Season Begins with Clouser Minnows and Half and Halfs





What a great start to another fly tying season! Twenty-nine keen fly fishers came out on a frigid Monday evening and worked on tying Bob Clouser's famous clouser minnow. Perhaps the fly that has caught more species than any other fly! Clouser minnows are not difficult to tie although mounting bucktail at the correct angle ensures you get a nice tapered head on the fly. When you add some tail feathers similar to a deceiver, you then have a fly called a half and half! Lastly we tied clousers and half and halts with stinger hooks.


Next week, Brandon Fawcett, guide at Little Corn Island is our guest tyer. I am sure we will be tying some great salt water patterns!
