Default Crawfish Pattern?

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have an easy crawfish pattern for bass fishing? Everything I have seen online looks pretty difficult. Thanks for any help.

i have made a few over the years based on a wooly bugger type fly.. only main difference is i tied it clouser style with the eyes sitting in a way that it would ride with the hook point up and instead of using a single plume of marabou for what would be the wooly bugger tail.. i used two hackles offset to each side of the hook to impersonate the claws.. tie in some mono eyes either pre-made or burn your own out of heavy mono and you should have an easy crayfish pattern.. you can vary the colors to suit your local crayfish..

you should trim the hackle that you palmer on the back and sides.. so it only has hackle points underneath .. fairly easy pattern.. if you can tie a wooly bugger you can do this...

Tim Haddon's Dead Drift Crayfish - designed as a Brown Trout fly, but it works well as a bass fly.
