    I made the eyes myself with 30 lb mono a bead and epoxy
    crystal flash antenna & bucktail
    some more buck tail, the rest is mixed dubbing in a loop and palmered slappen and/or large saddle hackle
    there is also a wire or mono rib
    I think they are on stealhead irons cause that's what I swing them for
    they work for sea runs as well
    Bass think they are crawdads... at least that's what the last bass I asked said before I let him go said
    They also work on large trout
    a smaller version works well for rezzies in winter

    I would like to add
    I know everything there is to know about da shrimpin' busniness
