crab patterns & legs
I'm attemptiong to make foam body crabs - I've seen a couple guys using rubber bands for legs and I tried maribou (less than fully satisfied with results).
I'm wondering what else is being used to imitate legs & claws on small crabs (size 1, 1/0 flies). Yes, I'll probably end up with rubber bands but if there's something more realistic (and less jig-like) I'd like to try it.
If it helps: I'm trying to imitate a crab in a non-threatened pattern will "swim" close to a real crab when retrieved (meaning the eyes are perp to the hook eye)
