    Arrow Some Cripples

    So staying with the emerger theme here are some Cripples. The colour scheme follows that of the mature Nymph I posted earlier. I've actually been fishing these Cripples for two seasons now. Hatching Nymphs that get stuck in the film i.e emergers/ cripples are an easy meal for them fishies.

    Thanks guys,

    For those new to tying these type of flies remember that you can change/sub the body with so many other materials for example; goose biots, turkey biots, body quills, dubbing,etc.The options are endless.
