    I’ve always thought that one of the reasons Clousers make such an effective minnow imitation is that the offset weights of the hook/dumbbell eye keep the fly tracking “upright”, that is to say with the light/dark colors (belly/back) riding correctly in the water. Doesn’t tying this on a tube kind of defeat that?
