The Gummy Crane was born on a fishing trip with fellow Guide Chris Steinbeck. Chris had taken a seine and we found several very large crane flies. We snapped a picture and studied it for a while. How this came about is really funny. I was literally on the toilet, where the best thinking happens for many of us, and the idea hit me for this fly!
After about six months of tweaking, this has proven to be the most effective crane fly I’ve ever fished! I’ve had many others test it and they’ve had the same results. This fly dominates…period! I have put this fly up against the best flies in my boxes and it produced no less than five to one, and that’s in the winter time. This fly is not a looker but trust me, the damn thing fishes like you wouldn’t believe. I’m very proud of this Gummy Crane Fly and know you’ll love it too. With the added Tungsten Bead this fly will get deep in a hurry during spring runoff and high water level areas.
