However, the great John Barr is faithful to the theory that cranefly larvae patterns do catch trout. Will tie some and post later alng with the other patterns I am reluctant to share with this fine group of "o ye of little faith in the cranefly" gentlemen ;)

Come on man! Everyone knows that crane flies WILL NOT catch trout ;). They are worthless patterns to waste your time on, much less tie on the end of a line. If anyone wants to dispose of theirs in a humane manner, PM me and I'll give you my address to send them to! Thats my story, an I'm stickin to it!:D
