Question Another best Fly question ???

Recently I saw the thread re-emerge that I had posted
sometime back regarding your best Bluegill fly. I was very
pleased to see over 4,000 viewers of that post. Well here's
one that will closely mimic the first thread.

What is your favorite fly for Crappie ? Do you have a picture,
or a recipe that you would share ?

I read a recent article in one of my Fly Fishing magazines
regarding catching Crappie on a fly rod.

Do you ever target this species with your fly rod ?
If so, which weight rod do you use ?
Do you use a floating, or sink tip ?

I took the boat out this past Friday on a local smaller lake & in the early
part of the morning they (Crappie) were in the shallow water
roaming around, both large & small sized. (They were very easy to spot especially with good sunglasses) There were small bugs landing on the water
surface, but only for a second or two & I saw a few takes, but not too many. I had both my 3wt & 4wt rods setup with a tandem rig, total of 4 different flies, but no takes.

Do you fish for Crappie on your fly rod ?
