Clouser Minnows

Clouser Minnows. These are smaller versions on #8 hooks, 
but they can be tied on any size hook you choose. All you 
have to do is adjust the proportions of the materials used. 
I like to tie down less of the buck tail to the hook 
shank on the back than the original version does. 

Hook - #8 Streamer
Thread - Uni-Thread 6/0 (any color to match the fly)
Body - Buck tail (any two colors you choose)
Flash - Mirror Flash (Pearl)
Eyes - Allen 3.2mm Brass Barbell (Black Nickel)
