Olive & white half and half tied long and sparse. Tie in some orange crystal flash along the flanks.

I have had luck on an all olive clouser earlier this year. I tied a few more as well as some olive and white clousers and a simple olive and white with lots of flash and big eyes, then coated half with glue. Just threw it together out of what I thought would look like one, although this one is probably a little bulky on bucktail. I'm gonna tie up some real sparse ones and some smaller ones to cover a variety of conditions.

Thanks! Those look great Peter, happy to do a southern field test next week, in fact, will place an order. No testing necessary.
