Chasing smallmouths with crawfish plugs has long been a favorite pasttime of mine. Since taking-up fly fishng, I've been looking for a crawfish fly pattern that was within my novice tying skills, but could give the Rebel Wee Crayfish plug a run for it's money. I think that I've found it!

Thank's for the great pattern, and detailed SBS, Dan!!!

Searched on-line for the Chinese Olive Saddle over the weekend, found one, and placed the order. Today they emailed me that it's back ordered for at least a week.....

Well, the Chinese Soft Hackle in olive finally arrived today, and just in time! I'm almost done with my hoppers for the terrestrial swap #2, and I've got at least four hotel nights next week! Hopefully, by the end of the week, I'll have a decent number of respectable looking "Dan's Crayfish" in my flybox!

I see a pack of new hooks in my future, great looking pattern. I've only tried a crayfish once... it wasn't good enough to try again. Nice writeup

Dan:

I tried tying something similar once, but my amateurish efforts were not quite as keen as yours.

This is a very innovative pattern, and I will start working on it soon. Thanks bunches Dan.
