The Kraken


Baby Crawdad?


Dragonfly Nymph?



Hook: Dai Riki 710, #8
Weight: .030 lead wire, ten wraps on back half of hook shank
Abdomen: dubbing loop of bunny fur, palmered forward over lead wrap
Eyes: medium black chain eyes
Wings: orange crystal flash
Thorax: brown antron dubbing
Head: brown antron dubbing.

I fish this fly on a full sink line in stillwaters to imitate a dragonfly nymph or small crawdad.
I've tied a few in a light varient and plan on testing it out on the carp flats later this season.

I like that old timey bug; it's both honky and tonk

Man the trout here in BC Canada would LOVE that fly.

I tie a similar bug, but this one looks beautiful. Great job.
