    Default Juvenile Crawfish



    Tied with monofilament and mono thread with .025 lead wire for weight and flex seal head cement. It has a monofilament weed guard to protect the # 8 hook.

    Impressive indeed! How did you get the claws to look so real?
    Awesome!

    Thanks, Kyle ,turvy and melk. The claws are made with 25 lb mono for the main arm with 2 pieces of 10 lb test tied to the ends to form the pinchers. The segment in the claws arms are buit up with thread wraps and sealed with a drop of head cement. The other eight arms are made from 4 pieces of 25 lb mono that are flattened and heat kinked to hold their position. The entire fly is very sturdy , even the antennae is tied into the hook as a single piece of 6lb mono.

    Thanks Fred, an SBS would be great. When you do the claws do you tie a bunch at one time? I have to try this, once I get my soft hackling down!
