Clouser’s approach to fly design begins and ends onstream, with much time spent at the workbench. Careful observation of the behaviour, habitats, and physical features of the foods fish eat is essential to developing a fly that looks and acts like the real thing and his durable, easy-to-cast patterns consistently catch fish of every species – trout, carp, smallmouth, pike, and more. In sections devoted to materials and tying techniques, Clouser offers insight into his methods and provides a solid foundation for designing flies with confidence. The story of and instructions to tie the popular and successful Clouser Deep Minnow and its variations, including Purple Darter, Clouser Crayfish, EZ Popper, Rattle Clouser, Bright Sides Minnow, and more, are told by the originator himself.
