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.
