Duane Hada's Creek Crawler

We had had huge demand to get this video up on screen _ the best Crawdad pattern around: Duane Hada's Creek Crawler available through Umpqua Feather Merchants dealers, including Dally's Ozark Fly Fisher. .

Tied here by Dally's smallmouth & trout guide Ben Levin, who had significant input into the design of the Creek Crawler.
Its design, the combination of weight and material selection, allows this fly to be fished on the bottom, where crawdads are home, in fast flowing Ozark creeks and where ever smallmouth are found.

Duane is also a nationally know artist and you can find his gallery here.

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.
