Anyone have instructions for a good crawfish pattern they would like to share?

Here's one that's easy to tie, with videos:

Guess you'll have to cut/past the link--can't figure out how to get around the quote (').

Skip's pattern is great. Don't forget about the venerable ol' Woolly Bugger in brown/burnt orange. Quite effective and so cheap you don't mind throwing it where it needs to be, especially on float trips!

I've had huge fish take a large olive bugger, never landed a single one they were so big, my 5 weight barely cuts it. The fish in the GUAD are forcing me to go out and buy a 6 weight.

Search down this page for Ron McAlpin's Bull Creek Crayfish. It's a smaller pattern I've just started tying, now popular with the residents of Sloan Creek in North Texas.
