Steve's Daddy Crane by Fulling Mill // Crane Fly Pattern


Crane Fly Dry Fly Pattern

This is Steve's favorite Crane Fly.  An effective and popular terrestrial pattern tied with a parachute style hackle and extended body, it catches countless fish every year, mostly fished dry but equally effective just sub surface.

Make sure to experiment with skating, twitching, and moving this Crane Fly pattern.  Greasing your leader also helps keep this fly up high on the surface tension.  When you can do this trout go out of their minds for this fly.
