These FLASHTAIL CLOUSERS are based on traditional "Bucktail" casting flies.  The modern design features include the 60 degree, 4/0 jig hook.  This hook allows this fly to crawl over logs and other obstacles that would hang up a traditional fly hook or a 90 degree jig hook.  The lead eyes make the head "drop on the pause" during a pulsing retrieve.  When the head drops the "Flash-tail" silver flash-a-bou tail flexes, giving a life-like action to the fly.  This style is the most popular striper fly with fly casters in the Sacramento Delta region of California.  I have been trolling it behind the #2 Action Disc with good results.

Blue with chartreuse highlights is a standard deep water bait fish color.  These flies have plenty of flash to reflect light.

 

This color scheme is a close representation of a "Sacramento River Pike" also known as a squaw fish.  These pike are known for eating salmon and striper eggs and young.  This is a good pattern for muddy water or waters with lots of weeds/moss on the bottom.

 

If you could fish only one color for stripers this is the one.  Half of all the Flashtail Clousers I sell are Chartreuse.  It shows up well in stained water.
