Trying to improve on this fly... I have made some changes to this fly..The legs brown grizzly and are closer to allow for two little swimmerettes off the back. The claws are more inward in a defensive position and more uniform. The krystal flash is black and brown gold with more fluff from the end of the partridge feather.

A front view: Hope the stripers see it this way also.

Hi Striblue,
Great looking flies and this "Crab Apple" is awesome looking!

Any chance you can do a quick photo explanation/series of how you are making the carapace? For some reason I am not seeing it properly in my minds eye as you describe it previously...

Happy turkey dau to you all

Joan your post/pictures above and her first remark was (well, I'll drop the first couple of words) is "we give Sheba 'Frontline' tick and flea "anointments" once a month to keep her free from stuff that looks like that."

Matt... I think I could do a short photo series on the Carapace . I think doing the whole fly would be too many photo's...But in 3 or 4 photo's would do the trick for that portion..Will do it this weekend.
