Get Your Crayfish On!

Weather it Grass Carp or Common Carp, or any other species for that matter, a crayfish pattern may just be the ticket. Believe it or not, a small crayfish fly is one of my best producing grass carp patterns, where common knowledge is otherwise, I’m here to set the record straight. Grass Carp in my neck of the woods will readily take small brown and black flies with bead chain eyes that are stripped through the water. Try it and see.  Before I go, take note of the “claw” material.  If it looks pretty good now, wait till you get it in the water.  Squirrel tail makes absolutely fantastic little claws, i don’t really care for much else in a crayfish fly, simple and um um good!
