Video: Tying a Clouser Minnow with Tom

For the fourth installment of his Facebook Live series “Tying with Tom,” Tom focused on one of the most versatile streamers of all time: the Clouser Minnow. He tells the fascinating story of how the fly came to be, and then he shows you his own method for tying the pattern, keeping things very sparse.

For the foreseeable future, we will be doing these events every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 3 p.m. Eastern, so keep an eye on here, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Here’s the recipe, if you want to tie along:

Clouser Minnow
  Any saltwater or freshwater streamer hook, size 3/0 down to size 8.
Eyes: Metal dumbell eyes.  
Thread:  White, 3/0.
Belly:  White bucktail
Back:  Olive, brown, gray, or chartreuse bucktail.
Flash:  Pearlescent Flashabou or Krystal Flash
