Snapping Craw

The Snapping Craw made its way onto the scene during the past few high water years on the Missouri. It represents a small molted baby craw that has been washed into the column, therefore it is intended to be fished as a dead drift pattern under an indicator. May to mid July is prime time to fish the Snapping Craw in streams populated by crawfish. It can be tied in a variety of sizes and colors, but olive seems to be the most effective. Try fishing it in tandem with a san juan worm and you'll see happy results.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
