J.Stockard Pro Tyers: John and Katie Demuth of Kingsport TN, Find Demuth Fly Fishing @: www.instagram.com/demuth_flyfishing/

demuth newclousers1 72 dpiThis is a fly originally designed by Bob Clouser as is obvious by the name. This is how Bob himself describes the fly.

“A combination of the two most effective flies we ever used; the rear is Lefty’s Deceiver and the front portion is a Clouser Minnow. A proven big fish fly especially for big bass and stripers or saltwater species. All with epoxy protected heads, metallic eyes and appropriate flash material.”

This is a very well known fly that J.Stockard Pros John and Katie Demuth recently spent some time on and showed how they tie their version on the Whiting Farms Facebook page.

  1. I am going red fishibg in March… what are your thoughts on this fly along with my schrimp patterns as a fly ?
    Do you have all the material In a kit?

  2. If you get a chance, I also recommend trying whiting coq de leon saddle for the tail feathers. It’s my bass fly of choice. Grab a predator pack and veil one color with the other; it looks and fishes great.

  3. Nice job on tying up the 1/2 and 1/2 thanks for sharing. I am sorry but did not catch the name of your name would like to watch more on Wednesday evenings

  4. The following link in your email opened up the Keough dry fly saddle info. (Tail / palmered Hackle – Whiting Farms Freshwater Streamer Saddle Grizzly dyed Fluorescent Green Charteruse )
    Do you have the Whiting Freshwater streamer saddle?
