Re: Crayfish fly
Crayfish molt in early summer and not coincidentally, this is when they become important forage
This is because fish prefer their food not to fight fight back.
Large pincers, rather than being a 'trigger' are a detriment
That's why bait fishermen break off the claws of crayfish that go on the hook.
After much experimentation I've gone to using weighted woolybugger as my crayfish imitation. You'd don't need much else.
If you "need" to add pincers, make them small and 'soft'. A pinch of rabbit hair would be a good choice.
