A simple combination of a clouser and a Lefty's Deceiver, the Half & Half has become one of the most popular saltwater patterns. It has successfully targeted many species from striped bass to tarpon. The hackle gives this fly pattern a longer and larger profile than a traditional clouser normally would. Plus, with the addition of the dumbbell eyes you get the alluring jigging movement of a clouser fly.
We tie the Half & Half in a similar way that we do our clousers. There is no material that is tied along the underside of the hook/shank and rather it's covered with Veevus Mini Flat Braid and Solarez UV resin.
