Gotcha Clouser Recipe

The same words were spoken to me a couple of years ago as I got off of the boat at Tranquility Hill. Over the years I have carried hundreds of patterns in my Box. Now I only carry 3 - Gotcha (in pearl and tan braid), Gotcha Closer, and the Horror.

Anyway - the way I tie it is with a pink nose, inch and half to two inch white buck tail, over Tan Bucktail, with some pearl krystal flash on #2's and occasionally on a #4.

Based on quickness of the tie I usually tie both color bucktail's on the point side of the shank - but I have buddies who tie it the traditional Clouser stsyle and do just as well.

Tie it sparse (only the long tips)
