This is my new single hook crawfish pattern tied on a size 1 B10S

Size 1 B10S, Large dumbbell eye, and a healthy serving of cohen’s carp dub in Acapulco Red. (1) white calf tail hair at the bend of the hook and a few wraps underneath it so the hair (theoretically) sits under the crustacean eyes once its inverted. Does this extra step make a difference? Probably not at all. (2) Thiccc ball of Cohen’s carp dub right behind the calf hair and then I tied in EP Crustacean eyes angled down and out against the carp dub so they point the opposite direction of the hair. (3) cover shank with carb dub just before the halfway point and tie a zonker strip on each side, snip excess strip at the base, and cover the wraps with carp dub. (4) X wrap four rubber legs at the base of the rabbit strips. Small amount of carp dub behind that. (5) Palmer 4-6 CDL hen feathers (I used burnt orange from a whiting CDL Hen saddle). (6) wrap with carp dub up to the lead eyes, whip finish, and cut the rubber legs to roughly the same length as the zonker strips.
