Fly Fishing With Crunchers

When a buzzer hatch is on, these cruncher flies come into their own.  It is best fished on the top dropper of a droppered leader where the hackle gives a better disturbance on the water.

Try using a buzzer or diawl bach on the middle dropper - creating a great rig.

The cruncher is usually fishing on an intermediate or floating line using a figure of eight retrieve.  You will actually find a lot of anglers using the cruncher fly around still waters and competition scene for rainbow trout in particular. 

Our Crunchers are available in both barbed or barbless hooks.
