This video shows me tying a crayfish pattern that has been very successful the past few weeks. I am fishing it with floating line and simply jigging and bouncing the fly along the bottom through deeper holes. If you can follow and watch the fly you can even sight fish for big smallies by allowing the fly to sit on the bottom and enticing them to pick it up…then set the hook. I have caught several this way and it is a very exciting way to catch nice fish. The technology for the body is borrowed from Casey Smartt who ties a fly called the deadhead minnow. The fly is not that tough to tie and will produce excellent results for small mouths. By the way, you’ll need a brush for this pattern and I have a video on how to make your own, just click here.
