The weather started off fine this morning but shortly after Nessie and I had completed our walk in the woods our latest weather system hit Mayo with a vengence. ‘Frank’ is now blowing a hoolie and depositing an impressive quantity of rain on us, so I took to the vice in the afternoon and tied up some Clouser minnows. I have a good few already in the box but today I made some in more subtle colours than the bright greens and blacks I usually use. Here are some pics:
These are all tied ‘hi-style’ meaning all the bucktail is on the underside of the hook and not on both sides as it was in the original. A body is also added to give more flash to the fly. Hopefully these will give me a few fish next summer.
