Crustaceans: Crustacean larvae join the ranks of insect nymphs as a major underwater food source for the fish that interest anglers the most, making our crustacean nymph flies an important element in the fly box arsenal. But unlike aquatic insects, crustaceans don’t metamorphose into different adult forms, so the nymphs look the same as the adults, only smaller. In addition, they spend their entire lives underneath the water, never emerging as part of a hatch. Our collection of crustacean flies includes scud, shrimp, crayfish, and sow bug; use them to target bass and trout.
