instead of legs or hackle, I use sparse peacock or black ice dub for the body ...it will sit flush and still have a buggy look from below.

One of the things that seems to help me with fishing crowe beetle patterns that are hard to see is to really whack the fly down hard on the water , from that initial splat it makes it easier to see where your fly is and the splat gets their attention , if you lose sight of it on the drift a little twitch , just enough to move the fly a little will keep you in touch with where you're at. Another thing is that if you aren't sure where your fly is set the hook if you see a rise even if you don't think your fly is there , when in doubt strike , alot of times you end up getting them even though you thought there's no way my fly is there.

Tie in a "Post" of high vis bright foam on top of your beetle. I use yellow or orange. You can see it then even in faster water. Leave the "Post" stick up above the body just a little. It's funny because you can't see the beetle on the water just this bright "Post". It also helps to ensure you are getting a good drift because you can see it!

I tie some foam beetles with Estaz under the foam and a small amount of Glow Bug Yarn on top as an indicator. Very easy to tie and most guys that tie for Salmon or Steelhead should have the materials.

a little excessive, but cool nonetheless. Really like the shiny foam...
