Thanks for your help, I had found the shrimp pattern in the thread and search but couldnt find the crab patterns. It would be great if you found the old article/ recipe, the pictures looked so good, I thought that they were molded and hand painted.

I believe the crab was created from clipped deer hair with an epoxy finish.

If I still have the mag I'll post the recipe. ........

There is a post here in the archives about his shrimp pattern - type "Hiromi" in the search feature and you should find it.

Hiromi Kuboki Crab patterns

I saw some pictures of Hiromi Kuboki Crab patterns which looked absolutely fantastic, the best I have ever seen. Does anybody know where these can be purchased ? If not - does anybody have any details on how they are tied/ made ? I have google searched but with no success.

Thanks in advance for any help in getting my hands on these works of art.
