Chef's Crayfish Fly Pattern

Hook - Streamer Size - 2 - 6 Thread - Brown Weight - Optional, but probably a good idea Tail - none Body - Dubbing blend of brown and red sparkle yarn covered on top with brown Swiss straw. Pinchers - pheasant body feather Ribbing - thin red amnesia or substitute Head - store bought eyes Comments: Tied backwards on hook. Antenna in front is straw continued on from body. Claws are made from cutting a slit out of the tip of the pheasant feather. Lots of head cement on top of straw body to make it shiny. Thanks to Chris (Chef) for this fly. He originally posted a picture of it on the site and I had been bothering him for tying directions since.
