The Clouser Minnow is easily one of the most popular warmwater fly patterns ever tied, and for good reason – it catches fish in just about every situation! This variation on the original replaces the Krystal Flash with a new Hareline material called Ripple Ice Fiber, and it gives the overall fly some more depth and a little different look. This is one of our favorite patterns for fishing White Bass in the spring on the Missouri River near Pierre, SD. It’s a killer for just about every warmwater species...
In this video Dave Gamet ties his Jawbreaker Midge. This is a fantastic pattern twelve months a year, but it seems especially effective in the winter. We’re not really sure why, but various shades of pink and purple seem to work exceptionally well in the winter months. Tie this pattern up in sizes 16-22. Fish as a dropper pattern behind a larger tungsten fly for best results!

Ryan ties his Flexmaster Streamer, which uses some of the new materials we have in the shop from Hareline Dubbin. This fly is equally effective on trout as it is on warmwater species!
Hans ties a modern twist on a classic pattern. The dyed peacock stick used for the body in this pattern creates a great looking fly, and the starling soft hackle makes a fly that has a lot of movement in the water. The Nature’s Spirit dyed peacock comes in a full comes in a full range of colors, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
