“Fly tying a crayfish fly pattern can often be overly complicated, so, we made a video showing you how to tie a realistic crayfish imitation using just a few easy steps!” – Jesse Males

Crayfish fly patterns can be very effective on bass, trout, and other freshwater species. They are great fun to tie and even more fun to fish! Here is our version of a crayfish that takes a bunch of simple tying techniques to create a realistic pattern you can count on.


As you can see there are no steps or materials used in this fly that make it overly difficult for even the most novice of fly tyers. So, be sure to give it a try and share this video with your fly tying friends!

I’m Capt. Jesse Males, an avid fly fishing, snook snatching, kayak paddling, tarpon slaying, mountain hiking, manatee swimming fool from Central Florida. Over the years fly fishing has had a huge impact on my life and particularly on how I view the world we spend our time in. I am currently the owner and operator of as well as our online fly shop, The lifestyle that is called fly fishing has taken me to some amazing destinations and has provided me with some amazing experiences in the wild. From chasing big salty critters in the Florida Keys, to roosters in Coast Rica, to small wild trout in the Carolinas, and all the way up to the high mountain cutthroat of Wyoming; I have been blessed to experience fly fishing at its finest.
