Crayfish are an important food source and are found in many types of water. Though mostly used to catch Bass, Crayfish flies are effective for most freshwater species. Carp, Panfish, Bass, Trout and many others are frequently caught on crayfish patterns. The Olive Fighting Crawfish Ritt's Fly is one of the most realistic crayfish flies available. The foam claws are buoyant and make the fly stand up in the fighting position. This is what a live crawdad will do before a fish eats it. This pattern is great to use for sight fishing and most anglers fish it with a quick two or three strip retrieve then allow it to settle back to the bottom.
