How to tie Joe’s Mini Crayfish

“If you know, you know. This mini crayfish jig is responsible for taking some of the largest wild trout I’ve seen from waters where a 12-14 inch fish is memorable. Created by a meticulous rod designer and fly tyer Joe Goodspeed ( @teeth_and_trout ), this pattern belongs in the “confidence flies” box. From slow-moving currents and silty bottoms to heavy pocket water, Joe’s Mini Crayfish is best fished on a tighltine/euro nymphing system with the occasional twitch and jig. Fish it directly upstream with a dead drift or even cast quartering upstream to cross-lead the pattern in front of willing participants looking for a large and easy meal scurrying past their face.”
