Baby Blue Crab with Claws

This fly pattern is one a customer of mine asked me to tie for them. They sent a picture and I went from there. It was called the "baby blue crab" on the picture, but if any of you know the actual name then let me know. I did not come up with this pattern, and honestly I don't know if its tied exactly how the original was. I couldn't find any info on how to tie it online, but this is what I came up with. It's a crab with chenille claws. Seems like it will work really well though, and I figured I would show you how I tied this.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
