banded snapping shrimp

This is a pattern that was originally tied unweighted with the hook point down and a weed guard for tailing fish in very shallow water. I wanted one that would ride point up with the standard bc eyes for regular depth water. The fly would probably make a great small crayfish imitation as well, maybe tied a little darker.

Hook- daiichi x452
Thread- uni 6/0 white
Tail/carapace- natural frizz fiber
Claws- barred ginger saddle hackles
Antenna- orange k-flash
Eyes- gold bc
Hackle- barred ginger/cree
Bands- pantone brown marker

Start the thread behind the hook eye, tie in a sparse clump of frizz fiber and wind back to just past the bend. Make a small thread bump to aid in positioning the claws.
