About the fly:
This pattern is one of the most common ever made. The Faux Bucktail closer is a replica made with a synthetic material. Everything about this pattern is a direct copy of the standard Clouser minnow. Faux bucktail provides a ton of extra durability for any species that swim. From Dark muddy freshwater all the way to clear Saltwater Keys flats. This is a pattern to load the box with in multiple sizes and colors. An easy-to-tie “guide fly” pattern that is known to produce fish without a doubt.
