The video shows that if tied to the tippet with a non-slip mono knot that it will not twist the leader<br /><br /><br />
That\'s a Alabama spot from the Tallapossa River ARF Fall Shindig.<br /><br />

Nice I like , I tie something similar also and some french spinners for the fly rod , they will produce when nothing else will.

Looks nice! Here's a good deal, I'll send you my address and you can send my some flies!

<p>Looks cool, I tie something similar to a spinnerbait. I tie it 2 ways, one is with rabbit in a dubbing loop around the eye and the other is estaz. Both fish very well on a sink tip line. I originally saw the pattern online and liked it so I can't take credit for the design, but the estaz head I can. In the water the mono bends back when stripped and looks very fishy. I tied it late in the year so I didnt get to fish it that much but, will this year.</p>
<p>Here is a cell phone shot of the estaz one:</p>

<p>I like that prop clouser and I\'m gonna have to try tying a few. I\'ve bought several like the one FlySlingerCole has showing, they looked interesting on the shelf, but not in the water.</p>

I tie these for early spring and they are deadly on smallies. <a href="http://s206.photobucket.com/albums/bb125/smfisher/?action=view&current=100_3765.jpg" target="_blank" target="_blank"><img src="http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb125/smfisher/100_3765.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket" /></a>

They all look good guys, Hope to see some post on fishing trips with these hanging out of a few fishes mouths.

<p>I have no clue where you bought one at as this is a fairly new pattern and from my understanding has not even been picked up by anyone yet. Did you fish it on a sink tip? The one you had must have been tied wrong.</p>

<p>I know I still have 2 of those in the bag they came in. The arm is shorter and the "blade" is thicker and done in silver so not identical but sold as a fly rod answer to the spinnerbait. I\'ll be home around the 20th and I\'ll dig them out and either post or PM you a pic. I bought them in FL so that was at least 4-5yrs ago.</p>

Sorry abou that PS. It was accidental.
Great looking fly. Giving me some ideas. TX for sharing.

I never thought about adding a prop to a Clouser. Great idea. I tied up a bunch of wooly buggers with them and even a few Deceivers with props. They all worked well. Does the color of the prop make a difference? I noticed the ones in the pictures have a gold prop.

I don't thinks it matters too much difference, it's a matter of personal prefrence or in my case it was the only color I had ;)
here's a few pic's from the ARF N. Al Gathering this past weekend.
I really like how it works :)

Those look killer and nice and heavy (just how I like them)

It reminds me of whistler jig.

I like spinner-flies, they used to be common for fly fishermen to use for all kinds of fish, but have kind of fallen out of favor. I have a spinnerbait for the fly rod, but it's still top-secret.
