This crawdad pattern nothing like you will find anywhere else. It is tied right here in Missouri by a local tier from the finest materials available. Tied on Wright McGill # 8 hooks, inverted, with heavy dumbell eyes for weight to get it down deep and barred rabbit for color and movement. Yes, they are expensive, but you will nail both bass and trout on these awesome crawdads. Try a few and you'll see the rewards outweigh the cost.
