(How to Tie) The Gotcha Clouser
Once again inspired by BOTB‘s upcoming epic adventure, I’ve decided to post on my favorite Andros fly. Ok, I realize posting a how-to for any type of Clouser Minnow is like posting how to put on your pants: anyone who’s interested already knows how. Right? Ok, fine, go read another blog… or get back to work.
If your wondering what that lovely stuff on the wings are, it’s Rainy’s Craft Fur, the original, the best. None of that select crap that tangles first cast. This stuff sinks fast, stays fluffy and has just the right mix of translucency and visibility. Perfect.
Level wind. Wrap eyes (these are recycled off a previously shredded fly). Add “belly” wing.
Flip. Add flash–gold, crystal, lots!
Add wing. Trim ends.
Secure. Whip-Finish. Repeat.
Cut/Paste your head onto pics of HUGE bonefish.
Sip libation (in self-satisfied manner).
