To catch more fish on your Clouser Minnow and almost all streamers, you must never stop stripping the fly.

You actually need to try to take the fly away from the fish.
The Clouser Minnow is a must-have in your box for those days that there is not much of a hatch and you want to try to hook some bigger fish.
