Does anyone have a good Cranefly pattern that they tie?
Calvin - do a google search for this - I found 3 or 4 and tied up some on 3x hooks, dubbed brown bodies and wings made from a skin material I got at Kaufmans. The legs are made from single pheasant tail fibers - tie 2 knots (take a bit to get it down) in the fiber to resemble the leg joints.
Fished it on the Deschutes - if I had to do it again I'd use a foam body - it sank like a rock once it soaked in the water.
