About tutorial metrics:
Difficulty: Tying in a clump of material, palmering a material, and x-wrapping dumbbell eyes are considered easy techniques to master. As additional techniques are needed for a pattern, the difficulty rating increases.
Time: The average time the fly will likely take you to tie once you get proficient at it. Obviously the first few are going to take longer.
Cost: The total cost of all the materials needed for the fly, compared to all the other flies in the Fly Tying Video Vault.
Capt. Mark Giacobba’s Blue Claw instantly became our favorite tailing redfish fly after fishing it. The fly lands softly, it’s weedless, and it seems to be absolutely what the redfish are looking for when their faces are dug into seagrass. The original variation in the video is the go-to pattern, but also tying some with a purple collar and black tail (or visa versa) is a good idea for dirtier water when the fish don’t seem to be seeing the original variation well.
