In this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate the tying methods for a fly called the CrawBody Crayfish. Representing a favorite meal of both trout and smallmouth bass, the crayfish as a pattern is intended to be fished lower in the water column, and can be utilized in both streams and lakes. There are many variations that you can make to this intermediate pattern, thus feel free to experiment and determine what works best on your local waters.
Featured in this tutorial are the S402/S402BL hooks by Allen Fly Fishing (http://www.allenflyfishing.com/s402-streamer-2xl/) these hooks are perfect for this style of pattern. Also of interest to today's fly tying world are the unique CrawBody forms used, created by Flymen Fishing Company (http://flymenfishingcompany.org/products/fish-skull-products/crawbody/) they make the tying of this fly extremely easy.
