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, told by the originator himself. Clouser presents recipes for his successful patterns for baitfish, subsurface foods, and surface flies with detailed explanations and full-color step-by-step photos. Clouser's approach to fly design begins and ends onstream, with a lot of time spent in between at the workbench. His durable, easy-to-cast patterns consistently catch fish of every species--trout, carp, smallmouth, pike, redfish, albacore, 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.
