Crab fly with floating claws
Primal Influence posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchG'day all! I'm in the process of creating a crab fly that has floating claws made out of foam. The problem i am having is working out the best way to attach them to the main body of the fly so it doesn't look too messy. At the moment I am cutting one part of a cross line swivel off to make the rest of the swivel 90 deg from there i am trying to attach the claws, I have tried to attach them via lure clips and then tying the claws on to this but its a bit to fiddly, I have also tried using braid and trying it straight on like that but it just doesn't look right. Any suggestions on how to attach the claws would be appreciated. The reason I am trying this design is I am trying to tie a crab in a defensive position with its claws up. I would like to add i'm a very amateur tier but am enjoying creating this. Pictures attached Cheers Clint
Guaging interest for another saltwater swap
Li'lDave posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchTeehee... Thought I'd put a post in here and see what the response is. I'm looking at hosting another swap... This time focused on entirely saltwater crustacean patterns. I would make it open to all levels of tyer, and make it international of course, given I hail from the land down under.. These patterns can be somewhat time consuming depending on what you tie, so I'm not sure about numbers as yet... Given they are often quite heavy, postage may also be on the higher side. Does it sound like a plan? Let me know
