Fly Swap- Olive over White Clouser

My go to fly the past two years. When all else fails no matter what the conditions this fly seemed to produce the most for me.

Basic Clouser pattern with a few tweeks. Instead of a plain body, I wrap the first layer of white bucktail with pearl flash (angel hair or other) from the bend to the eyes. This gives a nice body appearance and a good look in the water. The other thing I like is to keep the olive fairly prominent towards the head with a few wisps near the tail. Just a personal preference.
