    Hot fly! - 9/4/2015
    By: from Nebraska

    The chartreuse clouser is always a go-to fly when I'm working over a weed bed. This spring, it turned out to be the most productive for Northerns and it caught the biggest bass (23 in, 7lbs) I've ever seen. Stock up on these if your fishing and get size 2 & 2/0 if your going for the big stuff!

    Must have - 7/21/2015

    If you're fishing the warm waters of Florida, you need to have a collection of these. I recommend getting various sizes and colors to have in your arsenal. I've had a lot of success with red and white combo.

    Good bonefish fly - 4/28/2015

    I purchased a variety of size 6 closer minnows for a trip to the Bahamas. They arrived on time and the customer service agent was very helpful with identifying items that would not make my delivery requirement. She assisted with order changes to get me alternate items with delivery dates I needed. I will be ordering my fly needs from Orvis in the future.

    I used this fly for a shadowbox frame and although I can't tell you how well it catches a fish, I can say that the customer service I received when choosing was excellent! It also looks just like the picture and was perfect for the frame!

    #2/0 Black is ideal for Striped Bass at night in the Fall with a medium slow retrieve. A coating of Softex enhances durability when dealing with rocks.
