The Clouser Minnow was developed as a smallmouth bass pattern by Bob Clouser. Blue and white is our recommendation for an all-purpose tuna and dorado color. Since then it has become a universal fly for all types of species and is easily the most popular saltwater pattern around. It has become a staple pattern for nearly all saltwater fly anglers, and in the Northwest, the most popular pattern for salmon and sea-run cutthroat trout in the salt. Size 2 pictured.
