The Hatch Outdoors One Fly Fits All contest is a fun way to use a chartreuse clouser minnow fly. I learned of the contest when it was originally posted on Friday July 10th while I was preparing to get lost in Wisconsin for the week.
Before I left, I checked my fly boxes to make sure that I had some chartreuse closures (because everyone should have a few), but I didn’t! Needless to say I hit the vise before I took off the next morning, and tied up a few fresh clouser minnows. I even tied a size 12 clouser. I thought I was going to have something different, but my secret fly was thwarted by a fellow #icatchsmallfish tour member Ellie Leafgren who tied a size 14!
The contest is simple…share a photo of a fish you caught with a clouser minnow, post it with the hashtag #oneflyfitsall and you’re entered. The contest runs until the end of the month, and there are 3 prize tiers. For full details about the One Fly Fits All contest please visit Hatch Outdoors.
If you don’t have a chartreuse clouser in your fly box, you need to visit your local fly shop or tie a bunch for yourself NOW! To see another one of my favorite fly patterns for bass, check out this old post of my Minimum Cowbell Fly.
