Gimp Craw (tutorial)
Decided to take pics as i was tying my swap jigs. Gave me a chance to experiment with my new camera. Got it as a Fathers day present to keep in my tackle bag..... thinking it is not the best choice for macro pics. Had a heck of a time getting colors and white balance to stay consistent. It might be better to just stay in the bag and do fish pics.

Anyway, here is the Gimp Craw ( only one claw Wink )


1/16 jig
Black tipped, orange rabbit zonker
Black/orange barred rubber skirt
Brown silicone skirt
Black/orange variegated medium (forgot it in the picture)
Black thread

Wrap base layer of thread...

Tie in zonker strip...

Tie black/orange barred rubber skirt (antennae) to one side the length of the zonker strip...

Flip the jig, and fold the other end of the rubber skirt back and tie it in. Trim the end to match the other antennae...

Tie in the 3 silicone strips to the length of the hide in the zonker strip...

Fold back the other end of the 3 silicone strips and tie them in the same length as the opposite ends, just to end of the zonker hide. Wrap the looped end all the way up the the head...

Tie in the chenille...

Wrap the chenille up to the head...

Make 1 wrap of the chenille in front of the silicone to help lay it back some...

Whip finish and trim thread...

Trim the looped silicone to desired length...

Finished... : Co-Founder

Great-looking jigs. In particular, I like the way the legs are tied in to position them fore and aft. Cool
