I have messing around with that minnow shimmer flash material and I really like it for Clousers. I only made a few in this small size and small bead chain eyes for low water conditions around the house. I also feel that this material will light up and attract fish on those sunny days. I had tied some small Clouser like this before with lots of flash and a sparse amount of buck tail, preferably in root beer and white. I felt that I landed ever fish in that stretch that I could that day. With the amount of snow were getting this morning and yet another day off of school, I may have to wait a bit longer to try these out.
Building the body of this Golden Stone.
Been seeing a lot more of the golden stones on the river over the past two years. I wanted to tie this for two reasons. Use it when they are coming off in decent numbers in some of the faster water and to also use it as a dry dropper setup on the river. I found this pattern online, so I can't take credit for it but it is a solid pattern.
Started making a few more video for our vimeo channel. They will be out soon. I need a name for this streamer. Any suggestions?
Some snowday fun with the dogs this morning.
Our oldest dog, Macie, loves the snow.
