    That's right, fresh or salty, big or small, any type, lets see em all.

    I love these types of patterns, so lets see your best crab, shrimp, prawn, scud, crawdad, or even lobster:)

    Fly salon winner picks next months theme, so on and so forth.

    Can't wait to see them all.

    I'll cook one up and SBS it when I get back to my vise. Main ingredients: rubber strips, krystal flash, my dog's hair, styrofoam and thick Loon UV glue.

    I'm way outta my league, but I want to start participating in the salon as a way to challenge myself and learn. All opinions and advice very welcome. Here is a crawdad I just tied up to try for some big bows I killing crawdads on the east side the other day. Hope it will fish.
