    Well, typed up a whole reply and then must have closed it... Nice first crab! They're definitely fun to tie up. I learned a trick from the guys at S&S Flies that'll help: when trimming the body, pinch both sides together between your thumbs. Then follow your thumbs with the scissors to make a perfectly matched body. I'd say yours matches up pretty well though.

    Browsing some fly fishing sites covering the rivers I fished as a student in South Africa (longer ago than I care to think) - came across this great SBS by Tom Sutcliffe for the RAB, a brilliant small stream fly that probably has its roots in skater type flies.

    So tried a few of these Red Ar$ed Ba$tards in the hope that spring creek wild rainbows in the California Sierras might never have seen such flies, with their excellent trigger points, especially in a breeze.

    Tail: CDL
    Abdomen: peacock quill with thread
    rear hackle: barred ginger
    Cree hackle wings
    Long legs: heron fibers
    Front hackle: medium ginger

    Thanks for looking!

    Jaybo41: Those two bits look killer, congrats!

    Here is what I have been tying this morning: Last year I tied some mouse patterns using Nutria fur, but had problems keeping them afloat, so I used Jack Gartsides gurgler pattern to modify my mouse with a big strip of foam, hopefully that will do the trick and these guys will move lots of water when stripped.

    Hook: Daiichi #2720 size 3/0
    Thread: GSP 200
    Back: Brown 1/4" thick foam approx 1/2" wide
    Tail: Shammy strip colored with a black marker pen
    Body: Nutria fur

    Thanks Larry! Lots of work and time spent on those guys, feels good to tie something else for a change.

    That's a great looking mouse pattern you've got going there! Adding the foam is brilliant and should really help you move the water. I hope they are irresistible to very large trout!

    PT that is ANOTHER killer looking pattern. You've got great skill, thanks for sharing.

    Those are all super cool!
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
