RE:Red and Yellow Clouser using polar fiber

Sorry the red is bucktail. Yellow is PF. But, I got it at the new Orvis shop in W. Concord. They just stocked up on the whole line of stuff from Success Flies(?) I think I saw red there. Give them a call. It's called Concord Outfitters, or West Concord Outfitters.

RE:Red and Yellow Clouser using polar fiber

What's your thought about the p-f fouling the hook during casting? The fiber is so limp that i thought it would hook-wrap when tied in that long?
Interesting colors.........

I tied it all to one side per a version by Roy who teaches the begginers class a UFT. IT helps hide the hook, which is bent back a little.
Actually I tied 2. The other one was traditional with buccktail on both sides. There is a strip of bucktail over the eyes tied down behind the eyes too. Then a dab of superglue to hold. Your point is well taken thanks.

RE:Red and Yellow Clouser using polar fiber

Terry- Looks good. Did you tie the wing all on one side,or did you follow the original clouser pattern. If you tied the wing all on one side here's a suggestion- wrap a short body behind the eyes and figure-8 over them. This gives the eyes more stability, plus gives the fly more flash. The color combo should work especially in dark water. ron

Red and Yellow Clouser using polar fiber

I've heard of people having some success with red and yellow aka: "Ronald Macdonald" color combo. So I tied a couple up to find out. The polar fiber seems nice.Hook size is a 2.
