  cranefly larva


Imitates the larval stage of the cranefly--an insect that is ignored by too many fly anglers. The fly should be weighted, either with wire under the dubbing or with a beadhead.


Another useful color combination is an cream body with a tan head

Bounce the fly along the bottom using the indicator or tight line presentations.
