Design Inspiration & Detail

Clousers are obviously a staple for any angler’s fly-box. Black Clousers will effectively catch fish anywhere. The Clouser emulates a small baitfish and can on occasion look like a shrimp if settled on the sea floor. In South Florida, darker colored flies are typically used around dusk or when the sun goes down. Believe it or not, the fish seem to like the darker colored flies at night. Still not sure how this works.

Clousers of all colors will catch just about any game fish. As always, the metallic/ crystal flash really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract inshore game fish looking for the indigenous baitfish. Tie them bigger for some Pelagic action.
