Hammer Head Crayfish and Others

Having been tasked to produce a few patterns for the great lakes region I’ve stumbled upon some big patterns that I must admit I’m becoming quite fond of.  Meet the Hammer Head Craw.

Testing went well on these flies and they will produce on Bass, Catfish, and I hope…great lakes carp! Next thing you know I’m going to be building a 10weight just to cast these buggers.

Also of note this morning was a small pink estez bodied fly with a purple wing taking down two commons and a blind quirrel getting busy with a grass carp.

    Nice, truly hammerhead style. If they work in a Great river, Great Lakes are a given.
