One of the most famous baitfish patterns used in either freshwater or saltwater applications. Bob Clouser's creation has landed more species of fish than any other pattern that I can imagine. This version tied, is a shallow water fly that fishes really well for summer time Smallmouth Bass. The bead chain eyes allow for a slower sink rate and more control in low water conditions.

I am dumb. I should have gone to North Alabama WAYY before now. Beautiful place and great people. Haven't been smallmouth fishing very long but I know that the fish we lost at the end of this video was a HOG. Dang. Im going back very, very soon. Like 3 days from now.
