Al Ritt: Ritt's Fighting Crayfish

Al Ritt has tied several patterns in our fly tying videos. See them here.
From Al:

I grew up in Michigan and have been fly fishing as long as I can remember. After graduating college, I moved to California and gravitated toward fly fishing almost exclusively. I have been tying flies “seriously” since 1983 and have been a tying instructor both independently and for several Colorado fly shops since 2000. In 2005 I also began guiding along Colorado’s front range. Currently I am a member of Whiting Farms Pro Staff and am employed by PEAK Fishing and I have several fly tying patterns commercially available. In addition to guiding, fly tying instruction and demos, my wife Diana and I own and operate our own company geared primarily toward flyfishing education services.
