    Default Swarner's Egg Face Crayfish

    The last fly of 2017 for me. Frank Swarner's Egg Faced Crayfish.

    Hook - 2/0 Mustad SL7
    Egg - 6x orange glass craft beads threaded on 20 lb mono
    Thread - Black 210 denier UNI
    Body - Brown Ice Dubbing
    Rear Hackle - Large Pheasant Rump Hackle
    Middle - Medium Pheasant Rump Hackle
    Front Hackle - Small Pheasant Rump Hackle
    Wing - 2x Hen Soft Hackles


    I got a chuckle from this... someone on another forum called it the GP w/ hemorrhoids. . I think it's a simple but potentially deadly fly.
