Pat Ehler's Crazi Craw Fly Tying Video Guide

Another great video done by Pat Ehlers shows how to tie one of his signature flies from Rainy's. The Crazi Craw fly is a great fly for lake and river smallmouth and largemouth bass, we use it for carp as well.

Crazi Craw Fly Tying Materials

Hook Gamakatsu B10S The B10S is one of our favorite hooks, perfect for hooking bigger fish, and ideal for the Crazi Craw. We recommend the B10S in Size 4, but you can use a 2 if you want a bigger fly.
Thread 6/0 Uni Thread 6/0 Uni Thread in red or black is the prefect choice
Eyes Pseudo Eyes We recommend the medium size in nickel with red eyes. These will help give the Crazi Craw weight.
Flash Krinkle Mirror Flash Use the Root Beer color when tying the Crazi Craw.
Tail Micro Pine Squirrel Zonkers Use the Crawdad Orange color when tying the Crazi Craw.
Body 1) UV Polar Chenille
2) Barred Round Rubber Legs
One of Pat's Picks, UV Polar Chenille from Hareline Dubbin is great for the Crazi Craw and a variety of different fly recipes. Use the Rusty Copper color. Choose brown for the round rubber legs.
