Thats the one fish I have not been able to catch yet on a fly rod is a crappie. Not sure of areas around me but will keep searching for them.

FarmerDave, tenkara is indeed a great method of fishing a fly for crappie. In fact, the rod is very much like that used with a classic telescoping crappie rig. The length of tenkara (the model I use is a twelve-footer) allows you to place a fly very accurately between flooded trees or in pockets within weed beds. The short level line allows you to work slowly, at crappie speed.

Here is a photo I took during a trip on Thursday, April 19th:

And yes, dc410, a small Mickey Finn may be the BEST crappie fly of all, with nymph patterns coming in a close second.
