And the underside, which is admitedly rough, but I haven't had much time to work on this pattern lately. Subsequent versions will be a little more refined, I'm sure.
Hook is a standard SW stainless hook, in this case a size 2 811S.
Carapace is white craft foam (adhesive back), on top of which was placed a pair of webby hackles.
Legs and claws are badger hackles.
Eyes are melted 50-lb. mono.
Mouth is hot orange flashabou and tan marabou.

I already have a list of aspects that need to be changed and/or refined for the future of this "pattern"; once again, this stems from Striblue's crab apples and the standing crab.
