I had several members on another site ask me back in 2012 to do a tutorial on how i make my Crawdads. I thought i would share on TFF.


Ok, some members asked to see a tutorial, this is how i make them:

Paint the jighead the color of your choice, start a thread base, and tie in some bucktail or hair of your choice.



Prepare the eyes: I used 30 lb red mono . put the mono near a heat source ( i used my alchohol lamp) keep rotating the mono getting it near the heat then backing out until you get the eyes to your liking:

Tie in your eyes so they are facing down towards the hook:

Tie in your Claw Material ( i used orange rabbit strips for this tutorial)


wrap back towards the head, and apply head cement or your choice to lock it in:

tie in rubber tenacles of your choice:

Tie in flash of your choice ( i used one doubled strand of shrimp):

Tie in your chenille, wrap the chenille, and whip finish:


Enjoy your new craw:

Fishing is good right now and from what I'm hearing it should just get better.
