Sparkle Clouser by McFly Angler

I love using Clouser minnows and fondly remember being able to watch Bob Clouser tie a few at a fishing show years ago. He mentioned several times not to overdress the fly and that most commercially tied flies broke this rule. The sparseness of the fly allows light to pass through the hairs and helps to sell it the predator as a baitfish. Shawn’s version of the Clouser tied with lots of light reflecting pearl flash. this will make a nice fly for trout in a number of colors. You can find the flash at Fly Tyer’s Dungeon.

Keeled Minnow Streamer by McFly Angler

I’ve been following Shawn from McFly Angler for a few months now and in addition to the great fly tying content on the page, he also ties up some great looking flies. This keeled streamer is great for bass, pike, and larger trout. The fly rides hook up in the water and should help avoid any unscheduled snags. Make sure that you view until the end to get a preview of the fly swimming underwater.
