Crayfish Pattern and some streamers

Recommended Posts

I have been studying various saltwater crab patterns for the last couple weeks trying to come up with a relatively simple and realistic crayfish pattern. This is what I came up with. It has dumbell eyes tied at the eye of the hook (hidden on the underside). The hook is a size #6. It's fairly easy to tie. We'll see how it fairs in the water.

I've also been tying some EP streamers, also size #6. It's been awhile since I've tied, and I need to polish up my proportions. But they should work fine. I'm looking forward to getting back on some local smallmouth streams!

Nice selection. I like throwing the EP patterns; they work really well when the minnow bite is on.

Colt, those look like fish catchers for sure but only when used with glass rods I bet :)

 

Have you ever used Fly Tyers Dungeon Congo hair for those EP style flies, lot cheaper than EP fibers in case you didn't know about it.
