Don't need to say much here...except to say that the original clouser minnow developed by Bob Clouser can be tyed two ways..One the way you see with the lower wing in white and tied over the barebell shank... the other is to ingnor the lower wing and just do the upper wing attatching it close to the eye of the hook. Both Lefty Kreh and Bob Clouser have created a fly that incorporates portions of the clouser and the deceiver ..the half and Half. I have used painted lead eyes to stay with original instead of the better prefab metal and plastic eyes I would normally use.
