October 20 Fly Tying - Clouser Minnow

Our next fly tying session will take place on Monday, October 20, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm. The public is invited.

The pattern this month will be the Clouser Minnow.  Developed by Bob Clouser for smallmouth bass, it may be the most universal pattern ever created.  Lefty Kreh claims to have caught 87 different species on this fly, and our response is "That's all?".  Here in Louisiana, Clousers are the best fly for speckled trout, sand trout, and white bass, and a good fly for redfish.  It's also a great pattern for schooling largemouth. It's also fairly easy to tie.

Bring your tools if you have some, materials will be provided.  For those without tools, the club has 3 sets of tools for use only during tying sessions.  See ya there!
