So what did you get ifish did ya get into....fishin the west side...paddlefish said:Just got back from west-central Florida. Before the trip I tied up about fifteen different fly patterns, but once I tied on a chartreuse/white Clouser none of the other flies got wet.
One tip I would give on Clousers is to tie some variations with regard to sparseness of material and the size of the dumbell eyes. For example, a heavier dressing with smaller eyes will obviously suspend a bit, making it easier to use in skinny water. For deeper water and stronger currents, a sparse dressing with a slightly heavier dumbell than you might ordinarily use will get the fly down quicker. It's nice to have the options, especially in salt water.
I also like to tie up real tiny ones using bead chain eyes.
