went out for about 3 hours this morning to a spot where ive been doin good on streamers. flipped some rocks and started finding little gummy, nearly shell less molting crawdads. proceeded to catch some decent fish all on crawdads. cutty went about 15"-16" the bow (not done justice in this pic) was 21" on the dot and fought like hell. lost the two alpha pigs i hooked but i aint complainin =)

Cool! I'd love to see the fly you used. Never really knew much about crawdads as a trout food source. Seem to read about it fairly often these days.

Great job finding the clues and great fish!
