    I went out to the Olentangy last night to fish one of my favorite holes for Smallies. My buddy recommended trying McCabe's Crayfish. I am now hooked. In two hours I caught 7 smallies, 4 well over 10 inches, and about 20 rock bass. I love this fly.

  2. Like that fly. Nice and subtle, I'm not a big fan of crayfish flies with the oversized claws.

  3. Nice you have a recipe?

    Jeff....When you coming down?.....Steelies will be on the fishin' "menu". Give me a call.
  4. Thank you!...Even looks like I can tie it.
  5. Unfortunatley, I don't think we'll make it to Ohio until winter really hits. The in-laws travelled here a couple times recently,and Thanksgiving is going to be out East.

    It's too bad, the Olentangy and Scioto sound like they're on fire. I miss my home away from home waters in Columbus. But we've been slaying the smallies and largemouth on top water in Chicago, so it hasn't been too bad.

    nice fly! I just use a brown wooley bugger as a crayfish imitation for bass. they don't seem to mind much. even have lost the hackle off them and they still eat um up.
