|SMFB DDH Craw | Talon Hook|
A barred marabou tail, orange sili-legs, Dungeon Copper Kraken dubbing, hot orange Senyo laser dub and a small Darkwater Dubbing head (around the dumbbell eyes). Nothing too crazy...a simple tail followed up by a few dubbing loops and it is done.
The Talon hook used is a traditional salmon hook (sometimes called an "iron"). Stu uses the clothespin section near the hook eye to stabilize the dumbbell eye. The flat spot does a great job to prevent the dumbbells from spinning...

Here is a close-up of the return on the hook eye. Stu binds the gap closed with thread and sets the dumbbell eye on the flat spot. Amazing how great it works!
I apologize for the junk pictures, it is really dark outside and I was using some bad lighting. I will try to take better pictures tomorrow.
