Trying different variants on a clouser minnow pattern

Recommended Posts

Both of these variances on the basic clouser minnow have gotten me several pike

Nice ties, Wayne.

My kids used to just slay the walleye and pike on a Rapala X-Rap in the "Purple Ghost" finish - pearl white belly, yellow sides, and purple on the top/back.  So I tried tying up some Clousers and other flies (e.g., big Zonkers) with the same color pattern...and they worked very well, surprise, surprise.  Don't know what it is about that purple and yellow combination, but the fish sure do seem to like it.
