The Story

A lighter bead chain version of the famous Clouser minnow flies. These flies are excellent for bass and large panfish, or as a streamer for trout. Simple, timeless baitfish pattern that works.

In sizes: 6, 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flies Great flies! Crappie love them! Even lost one side of the bead chain and still was able to fish it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most productive fly last year Everything eats it. Bass, panfish, catfish, trout. They are great for large bass especially in shallow water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great streamer Freshwater Clouser minnows are hard to find in stores near me. Orvis’ are durable and catch fish. Shipping was very quick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fly Went fishing at a local park in Miami called tropical park about a month ago. I used the olive colored Clouser minnow for the first time and caught four decent fish, two of them being a large red ear and bluegill. They where both pb’s for me and over 10 inches and the red ear was much longer cause they just get longer then bluegill. The other two fish where invasive fish called a spotted tilapia and a Mayan Cichlid. The Mayan was my pb and the biggest one I had ever seen all add a picture of it next to my 8 weight. Great fly, it’s name matches up with how it looks in the water, like a minnow. Planning on purchasing more once they are available again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go To The Clouser Minnow is without a doubt the best saltwater fly and this fly works great on lighter rods/lines.... even in saltwater. I caught my biggest Spanish mackerel on the white one - maybe because it sinks slower it looked like an easy meal. And it's unique to Orvis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great alternative to a minnow Good fly in fast water as an alternative to a minnow. Let it run across the current in faster water or strip it across in slower water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At a loss without the Clouser Minnow Must have for both fresh and salt water fishing. Have caught bass, panfish, and speckled trout in the Gulf of Mexico with the Clouser Minnow.
