Default Re: good flies for winter crappie

I haven't fished for crappies much but a lot of folks have good things to say about this one. It's an easy tie and is supposed to be very effective, and you can go crazy with all your favorite colors a la crappie jigs:

Crappie Candy Crappie Candy - "Fly of the Week #198 - FAOL"

I'd think a "clouser" tied on a small crappie size hook with marabou instead of bucktail and beadchain or small dumbell eyes would be good too.

Good luck!
