Fly Tying video: Captain Nate’s Lingcod Clouser Minnow

Captain Nate Stansberry’s Lingcod Clouser Minnow has accounted for some monster fish on the Oregon Coast. In this fly tying video, Nate shows you how to tie his version of Bob Clouser’s popular baitfish pattern. Nate uses materials and techniques to make the fly durable, and design elements to imitate a kelp greenling, the lingcod’s favorite food item.
