Awesome tie there! Just curious, what was used for the back/ carapace? An evafoam- like product, or perhaps a swiss straw? Just curious - whatever it is, it was used with great success!
Tight wraps,
Pete

Hi Pete

Its packaging foam I kept from a camera ... its similar to the closed cell foam you would buy for making gurglers, perhaps not so dense

I made a crab fly out of it too ..

Looks great - and thanks for the crab pattern as well!
I'll have to try something similar with evafoam, which is similar but thicker.
There's also a product out there called "mayfly spent-wing material", produced by a top- notch gentleman in Ohio, Jerry Belfour. It looks like what would be used to wrap electronics, but is far more durable (in my personal experience) and somewhat more flexible as well. http://www.mayfly-material.com/ is the site (no affiliation shy of being a VERY pleased customer!) and I may be wrong, but he used to send a small sample upon request...
Anyhow, great tie and I look forward to many more!
Tight wraps,
Pete

I can see it now...

Airport Customs/Agriculture Inspector:
"I'm sorry Sir...Please follow me into the 'QUARANTINE' area..."
"You cannot procede until we fumigate you and your baggage..."
"Worst case of Sea Lice infestation we've seen since we stopped a guy named Martin from Denmark!"

NICE TYEZ !!!
