Default A few warmwater flies

I'm basically a new tyer. I've tied probably 50 woolly buggers as well as a bunch of foam body bugs, but that pretty much covers it. So I've been spending some time tying a couple new ones.
After seeing brookfieldangler's Senko fly, I had to tye some for my local bass.

I couldn't find the Bohemian chenille he mentioned, but I improvised with some thick, stong yarn. We'll see how that plays out at a later date...

Here is a crawfish pattern that I tyed a few of. It came from a few different patterns I've seen before. Again, not having all the correct materials, I made due with what I had on hand.

Question: Should I trim the hackle shorter on the bottom of the crawfish? And maybe off the back? Also, I saw one pattern had pieces of foam for claws. I'm thinking of added some...

Pink buggers have always done great on crappies for me, so I tyed up another dozen.

I was running low on olive buggers, too.
