I was going to post this in my Tangy Smallies thread, but figured it would be better served as another thread. Here is the recipe for a crawfish fly that I came up with last night using some materials from a recent swap. This was tied specifically for the Olentangy and I may make some adjustments to it as I plan on catching a few to analyze colors and size specifics. Anyway, here is the recipe: Tie on in this order Hook: Size 6 Daichii 4x (but most streamer hooks would work, whatever size you like) Thread: Brown (size to match hook, 6/0 is always nice) Eyes: Gold Bead Chain at just above the barb of the hook Claws: Mule Deer hair (medium clump, wrap 3/4 of the way up the hair after you've tied it on so just the ends flare. This is kind of a pain, but looks good) Thorax/head: Dark brown, gray hare dubbing (wrap over the deer hair, trimmed butts and in front of-toward hook eye-bead chain) Body: same color rabbit strip as dubbing, cut cross-grain (trim after tying on so you can still see the eyes and it doesn't look unnatural) Legs: peacock herl ( two to each side, slanted back agressively) It looks good and I can't wait to try it, but I just had a couple good ideas while I was typing this. I think I will tie some more but use the peacock herl as antannae, some rubber stretch for legs and another deer hair clump for the tail, sticking out over the hook eye. Anyone have any other favorite craw patterns for the Olentangy or other Ohio streams for smallies?
