How to Tie the Clouser Minnow Fly – Saltwater and fresh water streamer fly

Today we are going to tie the Clouser minnow arguably one of the most popular and versatile streamer patterns ever made Originally created back in the 80's by Bob Clouser, a legendary fly tier, instructor and fisherman We will start by wrapping our thread halfway to the bend of the hook Prepare your hook for tying in a dumbbell eye Select the dumbbell size

Smaller dumbbells will allow the fly to sink slower, larger eyes will sink faster The choice is up to you Tie in your dumbbell For more detailed information on tying in dumbbells properly, click the video link above Now cut and prepare your buck-tail (for more information on preparing bucktail, click the video link above) The thickness of your buck tail will depend on how bushy or thin you want your fly I am using about a half of a pencil thickness To tie in your bucktail easily, make two loose wraps, then tighten the thread

Make sure the bucktail is sitting on top of the hook, and not covering the eye of the hook Make a few wraps to lock the bucktail in place Now pull your bucktail tight, and wrap behind the dumbbells and to about half way to the bend of the hook We will now be tying on the other side, so flip your fly over in the vice Measure another chunk of bucktail, and prepare it for tying in When tying in, make sure the bucktail is sitting on top of the hook Now we will tie in a bit of flash

I am going to use a chartreuse krystal flash I tie in the flash at the center of the bunch Then pull the other side over, and lock it into place Now we will tie in the back color bucktail after preparing it In this case I am using chartreuse It is important to prepare this clump properly or you will not get a nice tapered head on your fly Refer to my "preparing bucktail" video link at the top if you do not already know how to do this

We will want to build a nice tapered head on the fly, and cover all the bucktail tightly Now we can whip finish the fly While not 100% necessary, to finish this fly, I like to add a bit of Epoxy In this case I am using UV curing epoxy because its much easier than the mixing stuff Make sure that the threads are covered completely before curing You can also add a drop of super glue, or paint on some head cement But I find epoxy looks nicer, and is more durable

This fly is one of those flies that is almost always in my box They are great for fishing most saltwater, and fresh water fish It really is one of the most versatile streamer patterns ever created If you like this sorta thing, subscribe to my channel And leave your questions in the comment section below Now get off your butt and go catch some fish!

MN Traditions – BASS College Fishing

(upbeat guitar music) (energetic drumming) (rock music) – We're here for our Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship, 61 institutions from all over the country, 89 two-person teams and 180 anglers competing for this national championship Three day event here on the Bemidji chain of lakes, Lake Bemidji and then they can go into Stump Lake, Irving Lake, Lake Marquette and Carr, and the Mississippi River that connects all of those different lakes, so that's what's happening

It's a three day event, the full field fishes the first two days, and then we cut it down to the top 12 after day number 2, and then those top 12 will battle it out for the National Championship on that final day – Lake Bemidji is really at the heart of what Bemidji State's all about This is our DNA, we're one of the few lakeside campuses in the country actually, so we try to leverage our waterways whenever possible So they have been wanting to hold an event like this at one of the northern universities BSU jumped right on it as a great opportunity for the school and the community in general to host an event like this

– It's been huge, it's, you know, gave a lot of publicity to the team and the school, being able to fish the college series, it's a lot of fun, you get to travel all over the country, learn new techniques, fish in different water and everything, it'll definitely be my highlight of my college career – We fish from Minnesota down to Alabama, we fish Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, we fish a little bit of everywhere It's nice because you get to experience and travel, see different bodies of water, you get ledge fish, fish deep, you can come up here and fish in the grass, you can do all kinds of different things, it just makes you a lot better as an angler, being able to experience all these different lakes – We fish all over the world, so we get all different kinds of stuff thrown at us, clear water, fishing deep, shallow, wood, so this is all new to us up here, I don't think any of us have fished up north, and it's completely different, so we had to learn it pretty quick, with the days we had to practice – It's the mighty Mississippi behind me, it's a whole lot different than Tennessee River, its– the water's definitely a little clearer, and got a ton of them pike and musky out there with the biggest thing between here and home, and that's, man you can't keep them pike and stuff off your bait

I'd love to come up here and just fish for the pike I'd definitely love to have some of those at home – One of the things we learn, especially from traveling all over the country, is when you go into different states, they have inspection points when you cross into those state lines, so I mean that clean, drain, dry, that's the main three things you need to do In your livewells, in your battery compartments is what I always tell our guys, places where water can gather in your boats, but one of the things we did here is we had a full decontamination process that happened before these boats even put in right here on Lake Bemidji and this whole chain of lakes that we're fishing – That was one of the first items that we had to address, and it was the first thing we wanted to address, so that included full decontamination stations for all of the boats coming in to the area, that's the very first thing they did as they rolled into town

– One thing that I think is really cool that Minnesota prides itself in is having people at each ramp, DNR checking boats, I mean that's the only way to prevent it, 'cause once they get into a lake they really do change it Water clarity, the whole ecosystem – So what we just did, we took the boat out of the water, you pull the plug, you empty your livewells to get all the crap out of there, and you lower your motor to get all the water out of your prop and everything It's a really simple process, and it's something that really needs to be done so we don't spread these invasive species, 'cause some of 'em can really do a lot of harm, and there's stuff that gets in your boat that you wouldn't even think about, especially in the livewell, these fish puke up all this stuff and it's– you don't even think about it but it's something that needs to be done – Invasive species are bad

We see 'em in a lot of other lakes, like Kentucky Lake, they have Asian carp, I mean we see zebra mussels in almost every lake we go to now, it seems like So it's nice to go to a lake that doesn't have 'em – With Bass, and Bassmaster, you know we strive, conservation is at the forefront of our organization, we try to set the standard for how fishing tournaments are supposed to run, and how we're supposed to protect not only the species, but our waterways, so other species can thrive and we can just have a better planet to live on (upbeat guitar music)

Fly Fishing Basics – How To Get Fly Out Of Tree

Hi It's Anni from kajanaclub

com – fly fishing community When I'm fly-casting it's not unusual to have my fly stuck in a tree At least for me it's a common problem Often the fly is tangled around the branch few times on a loop so if you just pull it it's only tightens it until the tippet line breaks So how to get your fly out of a tree when it's too high for you to reach? You can use the reel of your fly rod to reach a little bit higher and it helps if you have a friend so the other one can bend the tree and the other one can take the fly out of the tree Now let's get out and fishing

On this video you see some awesome trout and you see this tip used in action We have a rule And the rule is, if there's a fish If you are with the camera you have to run It's a cold day We'll try a small test to a new river

Mikitänjoki River I haven't been here before It's supposedly small place So let's go and check it out Cute little trout stream

All right We are here We have a team of five today We have two spin fishermen from Helsinki And then the regulars I'll try a green one

It's early summer, it's so green outside No theory behind that, just a wish He had already another take The fish got away and now the fly is there Summer is new and fresh and green

I was running so much First the other fish was on that side And that was a native wild fish so we put it back it was maybe 40 or 45 centimeters we put it back or maybe 50 I don't know we didn't measure it because it was a wild one And then mom's cousin she caught another trout on this side this side of the stream and I've been running back and forth

Fly Fishing – Fly Line Backing Why to Use

Captain Chris Myers Central Florida Sight fishing charters I'd like to show you today about putting backing on your fly reel what is backing?backing is usually micron, Dacron, gel spun line

its line that we put on our spool first before we put the fly line on On this one you can see that the bright green backing is on here I don't have a fly line on this one yet A lot of fly shops will put this on there for you, but you can buy your own and here I have a box of KastKing backcast you get 200 yards of 20-pound backing less than ten dollars So it's really inexpensive compared to what you're going to be spending on the rest of your outfit And the reason I want this is twofold one if I get to the end of my hundred foot fly line I don't want to have to try to be running after the fish to catch it if it's big enough to pull that much out I Have 200 yards now, I can stand still and the fish is rarely never happened to me where it's ran 200 yards plus my entire fly line and gotten away the Other advantages you can see how it fills up the arbor fills up the spool So now as I turn this handle it picks up more inches per handle turn and if I didn't have any backing on here So you can get 20 or 30 pound backing the fly line Is gonna be between 20 and 30 pounds something in my leader needs to be lighter than that so if big fish surged or if it did get to the end the thing that should break first is my leader Lose my fly line and all my backing The way you want to attach this is with a loop to loop connection There's a loop in the end of my fly line Come comes made like that

I want to put a loop in My backing I've done so using a spider hitch Which is right here and you can see I've made this loop big enough that the reel fits through it You're gonna see why in a second When I stick my fly line Through here, which is before I ever take it off the spool , I'm gonna attach the fly line to the backing Line still on the spool I'm gonna stick this loop up through my fly line loop Now I have to do one of two things I either have to stick this entire Fly line through the loop or I have to put the reel through if I didn't do that My loop was really small So if you only tied a little tiny small loop say your loop was only that big And you're gonna have to peel all this fly line off and feed it through this loop in order to get the loop two Loops joined so if I make a big loop then all I have to do is take my fly line Stick it through there or if my fly line wasn't on a spool I only have to stick my reel through there Before I pull this tight, I want to make sure it's nice and even And I pull it down slow

So it looks like it's joining hands There's my loop to loop connection and just as easy as it went together It'll come apart now I can put a pencil or screwdriver or something through the hole in here and I can reel that line up onto my spool So get you some backing Before put your fly line on here That way you don't have to peel all your fly line off and put the backing on get it as soon as you buy your reel Put you some on here smaller reels need less The bigger the reel the more backing you're gonna put on here for a light tackle saltwater I put it 200 yards on for offshore, you might want 4 or 500 yards, for inshore streams you might only need 50 yards So get you an appropriate amount of backing on your reel then put your fly line on You
