Crawbaby I've wasted a lot of time trying to tie 'realistic' crawfish imitations. But simpler impressionistic patterns work better for me. Crawfish fold their pincers together so they appear as one when jetting away in panic mode. So a fluffy back end tuft is probably more realistic than painstakingly crafted pincers anyway. I tie them on a hopper hook with barbell eyes on the opposite side of the bend, so the hook rides up. That way you can bounce them slowly along the bottom, with intermittent twitches.
