    Love the Clouser , started using Poly-bear & other synthetic materials like the durability good article/video catches everything from bass to salmon.

    So what you’re saying here is that instead of giving us his
    Favorite patterns……good old Jay slipped us a bass
    Fly?? Long suspected he had warm water
    Inclinclinations. Ha! Actually that is a very good pattern
    And if tied correctly will even catch the wiley SRC. As previously
    noted by the tier this pattern is well known in the
    Puget Sound area.

    I remember an alternate explanation for adding a little bit of red near the head of baitfish patterns. When the prey wheels away from the predator, it exposes the gill flap revealing the bright red gill structures. From behind, the big fish interprets the red flash just like a turn signal — “Someone ahead is changing directions.”

    I substitute the Eagle Claw 413-1, for the TMC 811S #2, and then tie the Clouser weedless (hook up & the eyes hanging off the bottom of the hook).
