Full-motion Crayfish  "Fly-Kit"tm

We believe Dave Whitlock has tied and successfully fished some of the earliest “semi-realistic” crayfish patterns for bass and larger trout.    And, undoubtedly the Clouser minnow tied in the correct colors has been used as well.   The Full-motion Crayfish was first showed to us by Steve May from Grand River Troutfitters (www.grandrivertroutfitters.com).   I approached them asking if they had a "good" crayfish pattern as they are known to chase good size Brown trout and Smallmouth bass?     Steve responded by throwing this fly on the table in front of me and saying  "it's deadly- try it out".    They have step-by-step tying instructions on their website detailing their fly exactly as they tie and fish it.    Our kit follows their pattern virtually 100%. 

If  you fish woolly buggers, Clouser's or big streamers give this pattern a try.  

Each "Fly-Kit"tm  includes:

  •  a custom tied fly, carefully packaged in a small plastic box.

  •  color, digital, photographs of the tying steps.

  •  a letter including material preparation tips & other information.

  •  premium hooks in our favorite size.

  •  all the necessary materials, hand selected, to tie eleven additional flies.

    Note- each kit will tie both crawdad orange and olive colored Crayfish- mix materials to create your color scheme.
