Lobster fly

I just finished tying my first lobster pattern and I think we should start a pool on who laughs the hardest when I break it out at the tip rip. To give you some idea, I showed it to my mom and she said "Your very creative but not very artistic are you." I tried to explain that my style is more along the impressionistic lines but she was laughing too hard.

RE:Lobster fly

Gregg,
Don't feel bad, me thinks ALL Lobster patterns look goofy.
Something about them big felt claws, ooooo realistic, not.
BTW, at what point do we stop calling them Flies? I mean really a 6" Crustacean Pattern and all. I guess that would make you a Crustaceanfisherman. Of course now that I spouted off, the Pope will have his Lobsta inhaled by a chukunda Bass! Maybe I should go back to bed.

RE:Lobster fly

My lobster "fly" is clawless. I figured my clawless crabs work just fine so why not clawless lobster.

I have no idea when we should stop calling them flies so I am not going to worry about it and call 'em flies if I use 'em with a fly rod. The only time I thought that it might matter was if you were going for a record. How does the IGFA define a fly?
