Will Ryan's Soft Shelled Craw

Hook: Mustad 9672 (Size 4)
Thread: 6/0 Brown Uni
Claw: Spirirt River Brown Speckled Mottlebou
Shell: Natural Buck tail
Legs: Orange Saddle Hackle
Eyes: Black Mono Eyes
Weight: .025 Lead (Fastened on Either Side of the Hook Shank)

This is my version of Will Ryan's soft shelled crayfish. Looks pretty lifelike, but not very lively in the water.

Truth be told I'm getting tired of the tying bench and want to start fishing! I'm going to wrap up the season with a few more from Joe Cornwall. The Red Foxee Clouser is next, just ordered my fox pelt yesterday!
