    Been making and fishing Clousers for 25 years. Just lost interest in them, that's all.

    It would be nice to actually see the weighted sand lance pattern but the attachment no worky.

    Nicely done Clousers. You are obviously a production tyer and a good one at that. Try as I might, I rarely tie the "same" fly twice. I just keep changing things around.

    I think this "Cutt Bait" by Jack Devlin is one of the most creative flies I've seen.

    This one has worked very well for me. Crazy action. Also tied with a tungsten bead inside the epoxy head for a clouser-like jigging effect but I prefer the no bead option.

    Jack Delvin ties some of the best flies on the forum, hands down. That cut bait is awesome, and funny. Much like his candlefish. :)

    Most excellent! I have been tying my sandlance patterns unweighted. I dont know why the thought never occurred too me. Thanks.

    Yes I like the cut-plug too! What size hook Jack, 3/0?

    That is for Cutthroat. Hook is SS15 #4 #6. I've used it when I see cutts tearing up schools of baitfish - tie it on and toss it in and jiggle it a bit.
    The one that Leland posted he photographed on a truck bumper. It is a bit chewed up. Fun fly. I need to up a few more.
    Not meant to imitate a cut-plug herring. Rather, it is a baitfish that a cutt attacked.

    Sure looks like it could be just the ticket when the silvers are ignoring flies but going crazy on the cutt plug Herring. What sort of action does it have in the water?

    True genius nonetheless.

    Jack, what did you use to give the body that bulk and shape? What is the orangish/reddish material at the front?

    Im really fascinated by this fly. Super creative tie!

    I have a strong feeling that if some low down desperate scum bag was to soak that thing in smelly jelly the coho at my favorite beach would jump onto the rocks to eat it.
