Presentation Tips: This is tied small so that it can be deadrifted like a nymph for big trout. Put some splitshot on if needed to get it down and drop a stonefly nymph or other attractor below it and expect a large fish.

Of course this would work for carp or bass just as well... or anything that eats crayfish.
