The only thing about clousers or that style of tie, and I've been doing them much of the day, is that when I turn the fly over to work on the bottom of the hook I tend to job myself continuously. I purpose use red thread so the blood doesn't mess up the color too much. Start material, smooth it back, jab finger, move up slide back, jab thumb. Other than that I don't mind clousers and actually finished mine today. I did spend quite a bit of time at vise to do it though. Not a fast tie for me and I can never get the nice looking head wraps a lot of guys can. Clouser is based on my favorite color of streamer, the Mickey Finn.
I should add on here that if any you guys are steelheaders I used a low water salmon hook which gives a nice platform for the dumbbell eye. Between the bright eye and the body and color combo, I would love to had this when I fished the steelhead on a regular basis in MN, WI, and MI. I can't help but think it would be very attractive to them and the hook is plenty strong for any size you run into.
