This fly, designed by Bob Clouser, is used for any fish that’ll eat a minnow, that is bass, trout, pike and their ilk. It’s made from two colors of  deer hair combined with sparkly streamers. It’s inverted, that is it is weighted by its bead eyes so that the hook is up. As a  result it is less apt to get entangled in weeds as it is retrieved. Those who fly fish find it very effective in attracting fish.
