Tying the Clouser Minnow with Bob Clouser

Bob Clouser demonstrating how to tie his famous Clouser Minnow. This is a streamer that has caught many species of fish. I have even tied this in a very small size and used it to catch crappie. Obviously, it is a very effective fly. Of course don’t hesitate to experiment with other colors.

The recipe below specifies the Mustad 34007 hook, but I would encourage you to try the Ahrex SA210 Bob Clouser Signature Hook. It’s a wonderful hook that I use for other streamers as well.

Hook: Mustad 34007 saltwater hook, sizes 1/0 through 8.
Thread: White Danville Flat-Waxed, 6/0 or 3/0.
Eyes: Dumbell eyes (size to match hook).
Belly: Chartreuse bucktail.
Flash: Gold Krystal Flash.
Back: Yellow bucktail.
Head: Tying thread.
Head coating: UV-Resin (Bob uses Solarez in the video)
