    Looks great! You really had that pattern down judging from your initial post. Just a few small tweaks. Now go fish that thing

    a little lighter and fuzzier (for a soft landing), and you got yourself a killer carp crayfish. Maybe bead chain eyes and a weed guard too for snaggy conditions.

    They look really good can and should definitely produce some fish! I tie a crayfish pattern that was originally intended for carp, but I've found that just about anything that swims will take it. I normally tie them with the eyes on top of the hook near the the eye of the hook, so it rides hook point up in the water so it doesn't foul up as much.







    It's about 3 inches long, so normally the small fish shy away from it

    If you're not completely satisfied with it, I'll PM you my address. I'll gladly play 'keep-away" with the smallies with it.
