Craneflies are under represented in most fly angler’s boxes. In Black Hills streams, craneflies are incredibly abundant and the fish often will move out of their way to eat a juicy cranefly nymph. The weight of this easy to tie pattern helps get you down to the bottom, so it makes a great lead fly as well. Cranefly patterns are overlooked, but some of my biggest fish have been on a big cranefly fished on the bottom. Tie up a few, you won't be disappointed!
