This small crawdad streamer works so well, I was catching fish I want even targeting with it. I went out fishing for carp, and got a carp and even some smallmouth bass. In fact, the carp I caught on this fly was 30" long, and the largest bass I caught that day was a good 3.5lbs. Most crayfish patterns are larger sized streamers, that are heavy and hard to cast. This fly is refreshingly light, and small. Easy to cast, and also easy for fish to swallow. When targeting carp or trout, sometimes too large is a bad thing.

I created this fly to mimic a skirted jig. When I conventional fish for bass, one of my favorite and most productive techniques is flipping heavy cover with a skirted jig for bass. Attaching on a crawdad type plastic really adds to the bass catching ability. The fly is a little more difficult to tie, but its durable and will last through many fish strikes.
