Mercer’s Missing Link Cripple Fly Tying Video Instructions

Mercers Missing Link Caddis Cripple FlyThe Mercer’s Missing Link is a great caddis cripple fly pattern developed by Mike Mercer.  This is one of my favorite flies to tie and fish.  This is a hidden secret weapon, not many anglers know about this pattern, let alone fish it.  Although the Missing Link was tied to be a caddis cripple, it makes a great mayfly cripple as well.  Just tied in the correct colors and you have a great PMD or BWO Cripple!
