Josh Stanish: Biggie’s IC Crayfish fly pattern tying tutorial

Josh Stanish is a tyer from Bozeman, MT. Find out more about Josh by going to Biggie’s Bugs or to montanatroutchasers.com

Josh grew up in the mountains of Colorado and watched a world-class resort grow from the ground up. His passion for fishing got started at a young age when his father would take him camping in the flat top wilderness. When he was about 10 he found an old spin/flyfish combo rod and headed to the river. He has been completely consumed with the sport ever since. Upon graduating High School he headed north to the great state of Montana. He attended college between his days on the Madison, Yellowstone and Gallatin Rivers.

Bunny Dun

More of one of my favorite materials to fish, the Snowshoe Hare (SSH) foot. This pattern is tied up by Josh Stanish, a tyer out of Montana. This Bunny Dun pattern is a nice little mayfly imitation and you can just switch up the colors to mimic other types of mayflies. Thanks to the Weekly Fly for bringing lots of great patterns week after week. There are some awesome tips in this video on how to use SSH.
