Tip: If youve never seen a cranefly, theyre an interesting bug. They fly at water level and sometimes throw a slight wake. Thats what the disc on the front of this fly is meant to recreate. Its going to add lots of action to the fly. Think of it as like a steelhead waking fly, or even a plug. Will it work? Actual results may vary, but sometimes fish have seen the same flies presented in the same manner all summer long and seeing something different might trigger a strike. If nothing else, its probably a fun fly to fish.
