This month we have fly fishing legend Bob Clouser who will be giving his presentation “Bass from Top to Bottom”. Bob is the creator of numerous fly patterns including the infamous Clouser Deep Minnow which is undoubtedly one of the most popular fly patterns to be developed in the last several decades.
Bob is an avid fly fisher and fly tier. He has been analyzing and experimenting at the vice to create the most lifelike and attractive patterns for fish in both fresh and salt water. His designs are popular worldwide and legendary on his native Susquehanna River, where he has spent decades as a fly fishing guide.
He has received numerous awards for his strong conservation work especially work done to enhance smallmouth bass fishing in Pennsylvania. Bob has been inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame and the Catskill Fly Fishing Hall of Fame for his strong support of recreational fishing as well as conservation.
Bob is on the advisory staff of Rainy’s Flies, Chota Outdoor Gear, Renzetti Inc., Scientific Anglers, Ahrex Hooks, and Hareline Dubbing. He and his wife, Joan, own and operate Clouser’s Fly Shop in Middletown, PA
