Default Re: Crayfish? Crawdad ? Swap?

diver , i can't even come close to your killer crawdad.. beautiful.

my approach is a more simple pattern, something we modified some from a P. Jorgenson pattern, i believe this was what Jorgenson tied

Ring Neck Pheasant Church Window feathers for claws , the tips being burnt away in a 'V' to simulate the claw
and melted mono for eyes.

we eliminated the claws , substituted a bunch of squirrel tail and eventually
left off the melted mono eyes.

my old buddy Jay is working on a foam cut-out pattern , as soon as he receives the cutter from --- Montana Flies ---- i'll know more about the foam crawdad

all good

buzz
