Our custom AK Clouser in Olive/White is tied on a nickel-plated long shank hook. Because salmon fry are fairly translucent, we have these tied with just enough material to give them a good profile while still allowing them to be very realistic. Olive/White and Gray/White are the two “Go-To” colors for sea run Dolly Varden and Cutthroat off the beaches. The AK Clouser is very good for rainbow and char in the rivers, too. The ideal leader is a Rio 9 foot Salmon Steelhead leader in 8lb test. It turns them over nicely even in a stiff breeze.
