Hellboy Crab

Here're some Fiddler crabs that modeled patiently for my previously pictured fly pattern. I take an impressionistic approach rather than one of realistic, cloning immitation. I suggest shape, color and motion to the fish, who usually respond instinctively and immediatly. But they can be elitist critics at times, and reject the artist entirely.  
You can left-mouse "click" to enlarge the photo and see the purply-green hues of these high-calorie redfish treats. And, hey: they got CLAWS!
