I found some Jute in the hobby section of stores I work and thought it would make crab and shrimp bodies

I like what I used for the little legs on that last fly, but I need to remember to not trim them until the end of the tie.
A also think I use 6 instead of 4.

First I tied on a mono loop, this helps the tail stay straight and keeps it from wrapping the hook then used FTD materials. For the tail and body black Water Silk, this stuff is shinier than Congo hair and EP and finer. Then gold Northern Lights. some red and black Kraken dubbing then Hi Float orange.
