Thanks Fellas for taking the time to share this information and to help me with creating a pattern to dial in the current crane flies on the Clinch.

  • I think I will create a larva pattern with light cord wrap and add an orange butt. Then; lightly wrap the cord with a sparse amount of dubbing.

I will post a picture if I get a chance to tie one up tonight.

Appreciate the comradery of all who take the time to share and teach.
