Volume 5 - NearNuff Crayfish and NearNuff Sculpin.(90 minutes)
Dave designed these crayfish and sculpin patterns to be very effective, while at the same time relatively easy to tie. The NearNuff Crayfish is by far his favorite crayfish pattern... partly because smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and trout can't seem to resist it. It's even a great fly for bonefish, permit redfish and carp. He shows you how to tie these two flies and then how to fish them correctly.
