If it looks like you can get enough people, I might be in for this kind of swap. I do a pretty good crayfish.

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

The thing I like about mine is that it rides with the hook up. I have dragged them through rocks never leaving the bottom and you just about never snag up.

I was just thinking about a crayfish pattern earlier while making my "winter tying list." Count me in.
