Mags’ Clouser tied by Piscator Flies

Years ago, my cat Mags, got under my feet and I ended up stepping on the hair of his tail. A big chunk of hair was left behind, pretty much even tipped, and so I figured I would put it to good use. I decided to tie the cat hair into a Clouser pattern and this was the result. Fox is a good substitute for the cat hair, besides, it might be too noticeable to have the cat walking around with a bald tail.

I put the fly in my fly box and a couple months later found myself fishing in a northern Alberta lake. I decided to try the fly and trolled it behind our boat. I was soon tangled up with one of my largest pike on the fly.
