UCA Crackleback
 
07:32
This deadly pattern is one of the most productive flies in my father's fly box. He fishes it nearly exclusively and keeps them tied in all sorts of sizes and colors. Tie it on a dry fly hook and fish it as a dry and snatch it underwater at the end of the drift or tie it as I have here with a bead and fish it as an absolutely deadly nymph pattern. Be sure to vary the dubbing colors up to match the active bugs in your waters!

On the other side, they call them shrimp!
