Norm, the only thing I see that's less than your normal quality is the eye. There must be subtleties that I don't see.

the eye did come out a little wonky

 

its the bucktail wing! it should present white on the bottom and black on top with distinct separation of colors (similar to a mickey finn or black nosed dace), not mixed. i admit that this is my weakness that needs improvement

 

the throat fibers should be under the hook not wrapped half way up around the shank of the hook

 

it could be tied on a longer streamer style hook. this one is tied on a 4xl hook, maybe a 6xl to 8xl would be better

 

it also should be tied with silver mylar piping. all i had was a holographic mylar piping (i try as much as possible to adhere to original recipes where i can)

 

something to work on in the future. even the monkey agrees smile.png

Cream, I've adopted a variant of your craw pattern as my standard crayfish pattern so thanks for sharing. One thing i just can't do is hot tip the claw. My hats off to you for the ease it seems your able to accomplish this.
