I need to get back into tying Clousers. They rocked this past season for me. I was crushing the smallies and panfish with them until I almost ran through my stash. The chartreuse/yellow and chartreuse/white were my go to colors in the Clouser. With that being said, I did really well earlier on purple Road Kills. So naturally I decided that I needed some purple buck tail to make some purple Clousers. Looking at the photo, it appears as though the middle three buck tails are roughly the same. The one on the left is blue, the middle one is bright purple and the right one is purple. With my new addition of buck tails, Clousers will be on the menu to tie up this coming winter. It is going to be a long cold one here so I am guessing I will have plenty of time to do quite a number of them.

A Shipment Of Goodies Arrived
I checked the mail the other day and was delighted to see that my shipment from J. Stockard Fly Fishing had arrived. Nothing like opening a package of fly tying materials and dreaming about all the cool shit you can tie with what is looking back at you from inside the package. I get giddy with anticipation. Regarding J. Stockard Fly Fishing, I love them. They are the best priced around that I have found, they ship fast and rarely make a mistake. Sadly, I can't get everything I want there but then can one really get everything they want at one place? I think not. Some may remember that we used to sell there before they closed down their Fly Market. Anyways, if you tie and haven't checked them out I would advise you to do so. They can be found at http://www.jsflyfishing.com
